The Space Center Kennedy has prepared for visitors a completely new attraction in the form of a project called Destination: Mars. This is a virtual tour of the Red Planet, powered by Microsoft HoloLens technology.

Guests will be able to explore several areas of the Red Planet in this way, and their guide in a foreign world will be Buzza Aldrin hologram.

It is worth adding that Destination: Mars is an extension of the OnSight program developed by Microsoft and the NASA Missile Engine Laboratory, which was created specifically for scientific research.
