Houston City

Attention: All Future Astronauts and All Current Space Adventurers

It’s been great to have Luke Jerram’s sculpture, GAIA, with us in June; GAIA is our planet composed of photographs taken by NASA astronauts through the windows of their space crafts circling the planet Earth.

Even more fun would be the chance to be close to Mission Control, the home base of these astronauts. And so, with the assistance of Ellison Travel & Tours, we’ve arranged just such an opportunity.

You could win this unique travel experience for two people to Space Center Houston, one of the world’s major science museums and an extraordinary tourist attractions as the official visitor centre of the NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas.

What’s to see at the Space Center? More than 400 space artifacts, permanent and traveling exhibits, exhibits and experiences and theaters related to the exciting future and remarkable past of America’s human space-flight program. The experience is designed to engage adults and children alike. Known around the world as the home of NASA Mission Control, International Space Station Mission Control and astronaut training, guests are taken behind the scenes to see NASA Johnson Space Center.

More details about the Center are at https://spacecenter.org/visitor-information

You can visit the Space Center while you also support the Huron Waves Music Festival, or, as we say, Take Flight!
