A new year is bringing a new astronaut-themed attraction to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Florida.

The all-new Astronaut Training Experience (ATX), opening in full in February, offers the public a high-tech, hands-on opportunity to see what it takes to prepare for a mission to Mars.

“This is the first time we are offering the ability for guests to actually come into Kennedy Space Center and look at the entire ATX, the Astronaut Training Experience, and have the ability to experience simulators and activities that are truly like working and living in space, as well as training like an astronaut,” said Therrin Protze, chief operating officer of Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, in a statement.
