A dream visit to NASA

Its said that a stay in Florida isn’t complete without a visit to Kennedy Space Center. NASA’s launch headquarters is the only place on Earth where one can tour launching areas, see giant rockets and even view a launch, if a launch happen to be scheduled on that day. To make our stay in Florida complete, we visited Kennedy Space Center, Florida on 28th Jun 2012, on the way to Orlando.

Experience  on IMAX® film Hubble 3D :

Space Shuttle Discovery, STS-31, launched in 1990 and deployed the greatest telescope ever built. Featuring footage from the final Hubble repair mission aboard STS-125, audiences experience a space shuttle launch sequence, intricate spacewalks and a magnificent tour of the cosmos.

Through the power of IMAX 3D, the film will transport audiences to distant galaxies to explore the grandeur and mysteries of our celestial surroundings, and accompany space-walking astronauts as they attempt the most difficult and important tasks in NASA’s history. The film offers an exhilarating and unique look into the Hubble Space Telescope’s legacy and highlights its profound impact on the way we view the universe and ourselves. A unique experience and it is worth.
