Be the Astronaut, a world-class experience featuring STEM-based content via a fusion of physical exhibitry and state-of-the-art, hands-on video game technology, is now open at the San Diego Air & Space Museum.
Scientifically verified by experts at NASA for accuracy and feasibility, the exhibit teaches you about the concepts, challenges, and excitement of spaceflight, through the use of touch-screen stations, artifacts, and interactive simulator pods built to look like space capsules.
You have your own crew of virtual content experts throughout every stage of the exhibit. These digital characters help you learn what’s needed to fly a spaceship, pilot a lander, and drive a surface rover — then are there as you climb in the simulators to actually perform these feats in a thrilling narrative adventure spanning the solar system.
