TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) -- The Challenger Learning Center has an event that's out of this world!

It's "Return to the Moon," a space mission simulation. 

This space-training helps you find out if you have what it takes to be an astronaut. The simulator features a Mission Control room designed after NASA's Johnson Space Center and a space station simulating a laboratory aboard the International Space Station.  On Saturday, July 11, you can fly the mission scenario, "Return to the Moon."

Education Director Susan Borland joined us on WTXL Midday. Click the thumbnail to watch the interview.

Return to the Moon is Saturday, July 11 from 10 a.m. until noon. It's at the Challenger Learning Center (200 S. Duval Street). Cost is $10 for CLC members and $15 for non-members. You must be at least nine years old to take part, and there's room on board for the first 32 people who register in advance.

Challenger holds simulated space missions for groups of all ages and is open to the general public on the second Saturday of each month.
