poohj80comcastnet 07 Oct 2003 If you are interested in experiencing Epcot's newest ride Mission: Space, please see the link below for pictures which take you through the experience. If you don't want to spoil your first time riding, stop reading here and don't look at the web site below. http://home.comcast.net/~poohj80/ The premise of the ride is that in the future, there will be frequent travels to Mars. You are being trained as an astronaut (although, if you are worried about motion sickness, you can opt out for Mission Control training) in the Mars flight simulator. Each trainee has a role during the mission including Pilot, Commander, Engineer, or Navigator. During the simulation, you will be prompted by CAPCOM when to initiate commands. If you fail to do so, the autopilot will take over and initiate for you (wouldn't want you to crash during your simulation). Photos in the order you will see them: Mission: Space building Mission: Space logo Lunar surface (there is a model of the moon outside which includes a marker for each moon landing) Flight Training Entrance We Choose to Go International Space Training Center Living in Space Conceptual design The Queue Moon Buggy Past Space Flight Accomplishments Future Space Flight Accomplishments Mission Control Mission Control Ready Rooms Mars Flight Suit CAPCOM Instructions (that's Gary Sinise) Simulator entrance Simulator Cock Pit On the launch Pad Engines ignite Flying over Florida Passing the Space Station Slingshot around the Moon Earth Asteroid belt around Mars Hearing Mars Crash Landing The Exit (Simulators as spokes on a centrifuge) Any questions?
