Astronauts will return to the Moon in the near future during the Artemis missions and Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is taking guests on a journey to learn how.
Beginning July 1, guests can visit Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex to participate in an educational space expedition called Artemis Mission Manual Scavenger Hunt, a family-friendly activity that gives guests the opportunity to explore the visitor complex in a new way.
Artemis I is the first in a series of increasingly complex missions that will enable human exploration to the Moon and Mars. Included with admission, and running through August 7, 2022, guests will begin their Artemis-themed adventure with a stop at Guest Services (or Information) to pick up a commemorative activity booklet. Six education stations placed throughout the complex will teach participants about the different stages of the Artemis program, including: Explore Ground Systems, Space Launch System, Orion, Lunar Landers, Gateway and Artemis Generation Spacesuit. Space explorers will watch videos and complete tasks to collect booklet stickers along the way. Once all mission stickers have been collected, the adventure continues at the Space Shop at which completed booklets can be shown for an exciting prize.
The final weekend of the month-long Artemis Mission Manual Scavenger Hunt, August 5 – 7, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex will host an Artemis Block Party celebration complete with street performers, DJ dance parties and fun activities – including prizes – from noon to 5 p.m.
