KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. – Astronauts are returning to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex and you can meet them.
The Astronaut Encounter will return on Dec. 13, the visitor complex announced Monday, after a hiatus of nearly two years.
During the Astronaut Encounter, veteran astronauts give a live presentation and hold a question and answer session about what it’s like to live and work in space.
The Astronaut of the Day is also available for autographs.
Visitors can also purchase a Chat With an Astronaut, where they take part in a group conversation with food and drinks provided.
The first Astronaut of the Day will be Don Thomas, who served as a mission specialist on four space shuttle flights in the 90s and is currently a physics professor at Towson University.
