(9:50 am EST) -- Have your kids wondered what it's like to be an astronaut?

They can now find out -- at the Kennedy Space Center!

The new Astronaut Training Experience at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida includes use of spaceflight training simulators and full-scale space shuttle mission simulation.

Participants also receive Astronaut Training Experience gear, snacks, a certificate of completion and a signed astronaut lithograph. The best part? Participants get to meet a real NASA astronaut!

Children must be at least 14 years of age to participate; an ATX Family Program is available for families with younger children. For more information, visit the Astronaut Training Experience at Kennedy Space Center.
