Space Center Houston is mission control, if you're wondering why the famous phrase is "Houston, we have a problem". (Though it's usually misquoted; it's actually: "Houston, we've had a problem".)
rocket launches that take place on site, so keep an eye on dates if you're planning a visit!
SpaceX launch their rockets from Cape Canaveral. Owned by Elon Musk, SpaceX has the vision of getting 1 million humans to Mars at some point in the future! (They'll likely achieve it as well.)
bus tour, which drops you off afterwards at the Apollo/Saturn V Center. (This is the only way you can get to the center, too.)
Epcot is more intense, I thought, but this is still fun to do), take part in simulators, learn about the Hubble Space Telescope and pause to reflect on all those who lost their lives in the name of space. For all the triumphs, there were also many sad, life-taking failures.
here, and I'd highly recommend that if you're in the area that you pay a visit. You can just about squeeze everything in a day if you plan carefully!
