2017 CREW Network Convention & Marketplace
Learning Excursion | Tuesday, Oct. 24 from 10 am - 4 pm

Prepare to be Thrust into an Amazing Adventure


Plan to arrive early in Houston to take advantage of an excursion to NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC). The excursion will include a lunch presentation and forecast of the real estate and development history of the NASA/ Clear Lake area. 

JSC, located on 1,600 acres south of Houston, is home to Mission Control, where space missions and the International Space Station operations are monitored. JSC is also where astronauts are trained.  

Participants will tour NASA and Space Center Houston (SCH), see space artifacts and exhibits, and learn about space travel history at Rocket Park, which displays the sleeping giants of space exploration. The most notable of these is the Saturn V Rocket (30 stories tall), which made nine trips to outer space, six of which landed on the moon. The excursion also includes a tram tour through the SCH grounds, visiting parts of the actual JSC, including mission control centers and an exclusive look behind-the-scenes at JSC with NASA and government dignitaries. Lunch is included in the excursion.
