A Journey to NASA- of ROCKET AND ROCKETEERS

In December 2011, twenty five students flanked with two teachers, set out Kennedy Space Centre, NASA, Orlando in the USA. On our way to NASA, we visited Disneyland World-Magic Kingdom theme park, which is one of the most popular theme parks in Walt Disney World Resort. We travelled through these lands, discovering how fantasy became reality when one learnt how to be a pirate, matching wits with funny monsters and conquering mountains. We got driven into the spectacles of splendid parades and firework shows at Magic Kingdom theme park-it is here that dreams come true for people of all ages. While in Orlando, one cannot miss out the Universal Studio- Island of Adventure theme park. Around every bend is another epic adventure. We took an unforgettable journey to the place where the World’s most cutting edge rides were waiting to thrill us. Thus, the first two days was full of thrill, fun, play, scream and laughter.

Kennedy Space Centre, NASA offers an experience of a lifetime for explorer of all ages. We had a virtual experience with a simulation device that took us for a simulated journey to the moon.

Kennedy Space Centre in Orlando is the launch pad of NASA. It is the place from where Kalpana Chawla and Sunita William flew to outer space. The Camp KSC programme at NASA's Kennedy Space Center is a unique opportunity for students to connect with the future and learn an early appreciation for engineering, technology, science and space travel.

 The 60 feet tall launch complex LC 39 observation Gantry provides a breath taking 360 degree view of the two giant Shuttle pads .In addition to the bird’s–eye view of the launch pad structures, the panorama also includes the Launch Control Center, the well-travelled crawler way and the huge Vehicle Assembly Building which is the tallest single storey building in the world.  

  “Space Station 3D”, filmed by 25 astronauts and cosmonauts and narrated by Tom Cruise, took audiences on an incredible cinematic journey of discovery from planet earth to the newest star in the sky-the International Space Station. This innovative 3D technology enabled audience to sit inside the Space Shuttle during launch experience the exhilaration of a space walk, work and float effortlessly through the Space Station.

 We had the opportunity to interact with an American Astronaut, who told us about his experience travelling beyond the gravitational field of the earth.

 All the students received certificates after completion of the course on Astronaut Training Experience.

It was a unique and enriching experience to be associated with NASA and to undergo Astronaut Training activities.
