--Ask a robot—programmed by the exhibit’s “Artificial Intelligence Program”—for help with the exhibit’s mission goals.
--See real artifacts from space, such as meteorites, and memorabilia from the Soviet space program and Apollo Space Race.
--View full-size spacesuits, including ones form a Soviet cosmonaut and a replica of the NASA Mark VII Moon-Mars Suit, and a Chinese Taikonaut training pressure helmet.
--Track mission progress on a magnetic Astronaut ID card as you learn basic principles of physics. Then jump into the cockpit, which comes alive with lighting, game visuals, and sounds.
