The Blueprints of the New Fleet of Starships at the Christa McAuliffe Space Center

T - 00:14 New Simulators
     Same great ships with some significant upgrades. Right after the excitement of the planetarium comes our eagerness to get behind the controls of our new ships. In the history of simulators we have always added onto the building, adapted unused space, or simply parked in the cafeteria. Now we have ships designed and built for our unique needs. No more covering school bricks behind a false wall. It is now the hull of the ship, and it will look and feel like it.


     The Magellan, Phoenix, Odyssey, and Galileo have all been redesigned and retrofitted with a look and feel that will be unparalleled with what we have had before. Many of these details will have to wait to be revealed as the ships are currently just framed walls and wiring. 

     That being said, it gives us great delight to share that each simulator will have a unique feel and character to establish the most robust and well armed fleet of simulators ever to have been constructed.

Construction Highlight: Mike

     Mike is part of the design team from VCBO Architecture working on our new facility. As you can imagine there are a lot of unique difficulties when designing a facility for a fleet of starship simulators. There aren't exactly a lot of designs to compare with. In addition most architects will never have the chance to work on a planetarium during their career.
     So we greatly appreciate Mike's patience, innovation, and efforts on making our project so amazing. We really do throw a lot of curve balls at him and he has come up with some great solutions. Thank you Mike and good luck with that plasma core installation.
