Sitting off I-565 and located at 1 Tranquility Base is the ultimate playground for those up and becoming Astronauts. Huntsville is known as both the Rocket City and home of the US Space and Rocket Center. You can't miss it. There is a huge Saturn V Rocket lying on its side inside the Davidson Center. It allows you to see just how enormous the size of the rocket actually is. This Saturn V rocket is what took man to the moon. Outside there is a full size Space Shuttle. It is truly amazing. The Alabama Space and Rocket Center is also home to US Space Camp. The Space Camp provides NASA type training simulations. The courses have been teaching future Astronauts of all ages what space travel would be like. People come from all parts of the world to get that experience. There are space dormitories where the students sleep. These emulate the cramped quarters on the real Space Shuttle. The students participate in mission solving training modules. Several NASA Astronauts that have flown on the Space Shuttle were early graduates of Space Camp. It offers an education in Science and Space travel that is next to none. Space Camp offers a wonderful experience for anyone that has a love of what it would be like as an Astronaut living in space.
