NASA's Driven to Explore (DTE) mobile, multi-media exhibit immerses visitors in the story of NASA. Guests will learn why we explore, discover the challenges of human space exploration and how NASA provides critical technological advances to improve life on Earth. The exhibit includes imagery and audio and visual technology to connect visitors with the space program, highlighting advanced human research that will ensure safe and sustainable future missions, and next-generation vehicles and surface systems destined for use exploring beyond low Earth orbit.
As part of this unique exploration experience, visitors have an out-of-this-world opportunity to touch a 3 billion-year-old moon rock brought back aboard Apollo 17, the last manned mission to the moon in 1972. The moon rock is one of only eight lunar samples in the world made available for the public to touch. Additional exhibits accompany the exhibit and are displayed beneath an inflatable tent that is part of the trailer's external structure.
Driven to Explore has no separate admission charge and is designed for all ages and venues. The exhibit is ideal for festivals, museums, schools and large sports events. Touring the exhibit takes approximately 10 minutes.
