(WTXL) — Samantha Reeves joins us this morning to tell us what all is coming up at the Challenger Learning Center of Tallahassee.

They are hosting the Space Mission Simulation Special Event: Valentine's Day on the Red Planet.

Celebrate Valentine's Day with your loved one on a space mission to Mars!

The Challenger Learning Center's Space Mission Simulator offers visitors the next best thing to actual space flight with a NASA-inspired Mission Control room and an orbiting space station modeled after the laboratory on the International Space Station.

During a space mission, team members work as scientists and engineers. Onboard astronauts in the Space Station Simulator work with their counterparts in the Mission Control Simulator to fly one of our simulated space missions.

These simulations provide plenty of challenges for the crews in space and on the ground.
