Mission Control: Human Spaceflight

Streaming live on
May 3, 2019

Live from the U.S. Space and Rocket Center

Mission Control: Human Spaceflight is an exciting opportunity for students to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the United States landing on the moon (July 20th, 1969) and participate in the excitement and fascination of space and space travel without leaving their desks. This celebration of historical, current and future manned space exploration is designed to encourage students' interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

This unique journey will give students a window into some of the nation’s most prominent space institutions such as the U.S. Space and Rocket Center (USSRC), NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, Johnson and Kennedy Space Centers, as well as the International Space Station. The program will explore NASA’s human space flight history from the Apollo Missions to the Shuttle Era to the future of space flight—the Space Launch System (SLS).

Students will further their understanding of the history of space exploration by interviewing experts, visiting space centers and examining artifacts. They will catch a glimpse into the future of the space program with scientists working on the SLS designed to take humans to Mars, investigate science experiments on the International Space Station and experience the excitement of being an astronaut through an exploration of Space Camp at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center.
