There are a few chosen people who can truly experience what it is be like in space and those are astronauts. Ordinary people who are curious as to what those astronauts experience have a chance to do so with the help of the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama. They have different kinds of attractions that simulate some of the things that astronauts experience when venturing into space: like the experience of a rocket launch, a simulation of a Command Service Module and many more.

Traveling into space is very dangerous, not only is there no oxygen out there which we need in order to breath, there is also the danger of getting out of the Earth’s atmosphere when a huge amount of force is needed in order to fight the Earth’s gravitational pull and the tremendous amount of air pressure when pulling away from the center of the Earth itself.

After surviving all of those there is almost no time to relax since certain amount of threats are still possible to happen, like the ever common malfunctions of the vehicle being used which could easily threaten the lives of the astronauts. In addition to those dangers, since there is no gravity in space, the body would float thus making the person, in this case the astronaut feel lighter. If this happens, a message would be sent to the brain that the body is lighter and thus will make less effort in carrying the body, making the person’s bone density weaker since there is not much effort in keeping the body upright.

When this person returns to Earth, his or her body might become too heavy for his or her bones to carry and might lead to serious ailments, thus astronauts in space keep their body condition in check and in order to maintain one’s bone density, exercise equipments are available. However in the U.S. Space and Rocket Center there is no worry, all safety measures are taken so that those who would want to experience what the astronauts do would be safe from harm.

The U.S. Space and Rocket Center reveals what makes the space so spectacular and traveling into it so exciting. Different kinds of attractions give people the experience that was once exclusive only for astronauts. With the U.S. Space and Rocket Center one can explore the wonders of space even here on Earth.
