Orlando Science Center says
Space exploration at its finest– on Earth! Traverse the terrain of Mars inside a first-of-its-kind immersive virtual reality vehicle created by Lockheed Martin.

The Friday, March 31, the Mars Experience will be parked at Orlando Science Center from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.! Guests big and small will be able to explore the Martian landscape from the safety of Earth.

Through virtual reality, you'll get the real feel of exploring 200 square miles of Martian terrain. High-definition screens and surround sound will mimic the landscape of the Red Planet, and you might even find yourself lost in a sandstorm.
