Docking with the Station Simulator

Docking the space shuttle to the International Space Station is just one of the interactive experiences inside the Astronaut Training Simulator area at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex’s new Space Shuttle AtlantisSM attraction. In this realistic simulation, guests use a joystick to line up the two airlocks, and then use thrusters to propel the orbiter forward or backward to make a good seal.

Atlantis from Rear

Anticipating that guests will have a hard time taking their eyes off the majestic Atlantis spacecraft, the Space Shuttle AtlantisSM attraction at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex was designed to give guests a nearly 360-degree view. They can walk alongside the 122-foot shuttle and just over the top of the left, or port, wing to get a close-up look inside the 60-foot-long payload bay, then walk behind Atlantis to see the shuttle’s iconic triangular silhouette formed by its tail and wings.

Atlantis with Hubble Space Telescope Replica

The new Space Shuttle AtlantisSM at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex tells of the Hubble Space Telescope’s successes and setbacks in an entire area devoted to the first of NASA’s great observatories. Guests can get a feel for the incredible size of the telescope thanks to a full-size, realistic replica that cuts through two stories of the attraction at 43 feet long – more than a full-size school bus – and 14 feet in diameter. Its fully deployed solar arrays extend an additional 7 feet on each side.

Atlantis with Orbital Sunrise

Beyond Atlantis, a 20-by-110-foot LED screen provides guests with yet another sight previously seen only by astronauts in space – the sun rising around the edge of a spinning Earth. The orbital sunrise takes place every 12 minutes at the new Space Shuttle AtlantisSM attraction at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, taking artistic license with the actual 90-minute cycle of the orbital sunrise in space. During the 12-minute show, guests can spot the shimmering glow of the aurora borealis, or Northern lights, close ups of the International Space Station, and even an astronaut on a spacewalk.
