Pilot's Perspective on Mission: SPACE at Epcot in Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida, USA.
Pre-Show for Mission: SPACE
You are invited to train for the very first mission to Mars aboard the X-2 Deep Space Shuttle at the International Space Training Center (ISTC) on the 75th anniversary of man's first mission into space. Make your way to the Recruiting Center where you will choose a team—comprised of 4 members—for training.
Each team member will be given an on-board position with unique assignments to perform during the mission. The positions include Navigator, Pilot, Commander and Engineer. Before beginning the training exercise, trainees will watch an introductory video about the mission starring actor Gary Sinise.
The Journey to Mars
After the mission briefing, make your way inside the space capsule—sitting side by side with the other members of your team. Feel the rush of take-off as you embark on a thrill-packed training adventure through space to Mars.
During the simulation, rocket around the moon, experience a brief period of simulated hypersleep, and land on the reddened surface of Mars, before blasting back to Earth.
Select the Orange Team or the Green Team
Mission: SPACE utilizes a multiple-arm centrifuge that spins and tilts to simulate the illusion of speed and gravitational forces. Realistic sounds from overhead and vivid video images only add to the experience of the simulation.
As an astronaut in training, you are given the choice to be a part of the Orange Team or the Green Team.
The Orange Team is a more intense training session and is the original version of the attraction, where you will experience forces up to 2.4G—more than twice the force of the Earth's gravitational pull.
The Green Team has a less intense experience. You do not feel forces up to 2.4G when choosing this option. If you are prone to motion sickness, you should opt for the Green Team.
