Shuttle Launch Simulator May 29, 2007Posted by Joe in NASA, science, space exploration.
Kennedy Space Center has unveiled an attraction better than any silly ride at Disney World or Six Flags. Last Friday they opened a $60 million shuttle launch simulator. Which accurately recreates how it feels to take off in a shuttle, complete with sounds, video screen “windows”, shakes, rattles and movement to simulate the fast acceleration.
Another thing not to miss if I ever take a trip to Florida. The first thing I wouldn’t miss would be a real launch.
