Kids Cosmos

Young visitors to the U.S. Space & Rocket Center will find something new and just their size! The Kids Cosmos Energy Depletion Zone, outdoors in Rocket Park, is a covered open-air pavilion featuring a safe, rubberized play surface for children eight years old and under. Inside the pavilion is the Lunar Lander, a simulator that slowly launches children about 20 feet into the air and then slowly descends, simulating a landing on the moon's surface. There are crawl tubes designed like a space station and child-powered miniature space shuttles.
