The Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida is offering The Fly With An Astronaut experience to a limited number of guests from July 29-Aug. 2 and again from Aug. 5-9.

The experience will begin with a preflight debriefing and then guests will enter the Shuttle Launch Experience to find out what it feels like to launch into space aboard a shuttle traveling 17,500 mph. The experience includes a guided tour with an astronaut; a catered buffet lunch at the Apollo/Saturn V Center; a panoramic photo stop at the Launch Complex (LC) 39 Observation Gantry; an autographed photo of the guest with the astronaut; and a parting retail gift.

Rates start at $199 for adults and $174 for children (ages 3-11). Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex annual pass holder rates start at $149 per adult or $134 per child (ages 3-11). For more information, call (855) 456-6597 or visit kennedyspacecenter.com.
