International Air and Space Program (2016 Edition)
Ever dreamed of becoming an Astronaut or joining the Space Program?
Wonder what ZERO G feels like? How about engineering & building a Robotic Rover and launching a rocket?
Then you must join the International Air and Space Program 2016 edition !
The International Air and Space Program is a challenging 5 day educational program. This year's challenge will be to perform a mission to study the chances of finding life on Jupiter’s satellite “Europa”. This mission involves teamwork problem solving & communication, among students and expert NASA engineers to adapt & solve many unexpected problems.
You will learn about building and launching rockets, design and construction of rovers & experience working in a floating environment of a wind tunnel and the application of flight procedures in an aircraft under a supervised flight.
We tour the actual facilities where today’s astronauts and scientists work, visit Mission Control and Rocket Park, Mock-up Facility including its full-size training modules of the International Space Station, the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory with an underwater full size ISS replica and more.
At the end of the week, each candidate will receive an official AEXA and Space Center Houston certificate during the graduation ceremony.

▼How you will get there?
2 Stage Rocket construction
Participants will engineer, build and launch a two-stage rocket. Launching may vary based on weather conditions.
Students must decide how to create a robotic rover based on a given set of parameters and tasks that the rovers must accomplish on Europa satellite. You will begin with a price list for supplies and then receive varying real world criteria to design, build and test your rover.
** Higher level of difficulty in the University category **
You will experience the simulation of true freefall conditions in a vertical wind tunnel
Here the dream of flight becomes reality by doing some assemblies just as performed by astronauts on their spacewalks.
▼NASA Exclusives: Behind the Scenes
A tour of NASA-Johnson Space Center with stops at historic Apollo era Mission Control, actual ISS Mission Control and the Space Station Mock-up Facility including its full-size training modules of the International Space Station. See rockets up-close that were used in early stages of the Space Program. Experience the space shuttle replica Independence atop the historic Boeing 747 shuttle carrier aircraft NASA 905. Also, visit the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory with an underwater full ISS replica.
