What Is a Hero? a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities. Astronauts are heroes by all means.But who were the heroes for the astronauts? Before the first astronauts? They were the super-heroes in comics.This new interactive exhibit at KSC will show you and teach you all about who these heroes were and what they go through on their missions.
Upon entering the visitor complex you will see the Hero’s and Legends building on the left and as you get closer it’s stunning, the Mercury 7 astronauts are 30 feet tall and 40 feet wide. Carved into the side of the building next to the Rocket garden. You sling shot up the ramp to await your turn.
The first room is in a 360- degree discovery bay where we discover “What is a Hero?” you will hear real life testimony from all walks of life. Along with astronauts. This is so amazing and moving it brought tears to my eyes. It is so vivid and real it’s as if your talking with them.
You move into the next room for “Through The eyes Of A Hero”. This custom build theater by Falcons Creative Group is absolutely like nothing I’ve ever been in. It brings a multi-sensory experience to another level with the 4-d technology. Guests will vicariously join NASA’s Heroes and Legends. They will live these spellbinding accounts through their eyes. Alan Shepard, Neil Armstrong, John Glenn, and Jim Lovell, travel through memory brought to life. You will be in AWE! excitement and danger without leaving your place. It feels so real with the 4-d sensory experience but I honestly feel that doesn’t do it justice it was more like a 9-d experience. You soar past the International Space Station and past the moon, I know what it felt like to be there now and WOW and I am truly amazed that Falcon Creative Group was able to capture this experience with such great detail and realism.
The last of the Rooms is the “A Hero Is”. It is answered by nine different attributes. you explore NASA’s early astronauts share all. All the journeys are unique with experiences and influences. Curious, Inspired, Passionate, Tenacious, Disciplined, Confident, Courageous, Principled, Selfless. These are the “A Hero Is” Pods where you see where the astronauts answer A hero is.
After that, you walk into Astronaut Hall Of Fame. There are all the astronauts on the wall with an Alan Shepard statue. There is a very amazing photo op available, you choose your favorite Mercury astronaut to appear in life size and snap a selfie.
I recommend going to see Heroes and Legends at Kennedy Space Center Visitors Center this Trip was sponsored by Falcons Creative Group but my opinions are my own.
