We're here at Kennedy Space Center visitor complex in the space shuttle plaza. When guests come to the visitor complex they can see in the shuttle plaza a huge mockup of the space shuttle. It's full size, they can walk underneath, look at the tiles, see the tires from the space shuttle. They can also walk up inside the space shuttle orbiter to see what the mid deck and the flight deck looks like and also the payload bay, that's where the crew does their space walks and everything. Also, in Shuttle Plaza is a full size mockup of the external tank and the solid rocket boosters of the space shuttle, so guests are able to see what they all look like in full scale.
That's a rocket.
Also, here in the Shuttle Plaza is our brand new shuttle launch experience. This simulation will give you a taste of what it's actually like to launch in the space shuttle. Astronauts helped design the simulation and they say it really what it's like to launch in the space shuttle and as close as you can get without leaving earth.
Can he shake your hand?
