Did you know that 216 out of 375 astronauts have served their country through military service?
This Memorial Day weekend active military, veterans and Gold Star families can camp next to artifacts that have furthered human space exploration and join in hands-on, team-building activities in our Military Family Campout.
Hear from an astronaut with a military background, build model rockets, explore robotics and train for spaceflight. Activities cover an array of difficulty levels to excite visitors of all ages.
Military veterans and their families will enjoy an evening of STEM and space exploration activities with Space Center Houston and NASA experts, sleep among real flown spacecraft and wake up to enjoy a private tram tour of NASA Johnson Space Center, the home of astronaut training and a working NASA facility.
NASA and the military have a long history of collaboration and partnership. Become a part of that yourself Memorial Day weekend!
