We first joined the movie about solar light and how this all happens. Since we signed up for the full experience which includes a mission in the spaceship Aurora, we really got more insight in space. Our hostess Anneline, did a wonderful job and got us into the coveralls after which we entered the breefing room. There every person was assigned a particular task. Mine was Navigator. Other persons were assigned to ground control, fuel control, captain etc. This keeps everybody involved in working closely together from start to finish which is take off to landing. A large screen shows the view to the earth as if you are in the space shuttle yourself. Recognize 1,5 hour to join the entire visit which is really worth it! Also kids will love it.
