Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory Tours
Have you ever wondered how astronauts train for microgravity? Hop on a tour and take a ride from Space Center to NASA’s Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory (NBL) Dec. 26-29 and see how astronauts train underwater to prepare for challenges in low Earth orbit.
The NBL is a 6.2-million-gallon diving tank where astronauts perform simulated extravehicular (spacewalk) tasks. The massive training pool is 202 feet long, 102 feet wide and 40 feet deep (20 feet above ground level and 20 feet below.)
NBL tours are $12.95 per visitor and must be purchased in addition to your general admission ticket. Tickets can be purchased online or in person at the Guest Services Desk. Space is limited.
