August 15, 2003 – The Epcot Attraction Mission: SPACE Opens


“Fulfill your fantasy of being an astronaut as you dodge meteors, navigate nebulae, and slingshot around the moon.”

On August 15, 2003, the attraction Mission: SPACE opened in Epcot’s Future World area. Guests can choose one of two missions: the Orange Team (intense training), or the Green Team (easy training). After choosing a mission, guests become astronauts, and are placed as part of a 4-cadet crew to explore Mars. After being assigned to one of four roles – navigator, pilot, commander, or engineer – the crew will be given special instructions to initiate during the flight. The attraction itself uses centrifuge technology to create the effects of a shuttle launch. The training video features actor Gary Sinise as the head of the mission. After the mission is over, guests can head to the Simulation Lab to view a genuine NASA Lunar Roving Vehicle, or head to the Mission: SPACE Advanced Training Lab to play other interactive activities.
