Mission Control

Have you ever wanted to land a rover on Mars, send a satellite up to space, or dock at the International Space Station? In Mission Control, you are in charge of the selected mission and it’s your job to successfully complete each one.

Mission Control allows you to step inside a replica of the Jet Propulsion Lab’s control room for the ultimate hands-on space mission! This immersive exhibit allows the next generation of innovators to learn about the wonders of aerospace and the science behind launching rovers and satellites.
