Aspiring space travelers: Jump into your space suit and report for astronaut training in Planet Pioneers: Journey to Space, where becoming an astronaut is all about adventure, exploration and endeavor.

· The exhibit focuses on teamwork to solve problems, accurately perform tasks and overcome challenges that an astronaut would face on a real mission to the cosmos.
· Guests can experience g-force, conduct maintenance on a space station, grow space food and learn the realities of showering, sleeping and using the toilet in space.
