JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- About a million people will be around the Kennedy Space Center for the final launch of the space shuttle program, but MOSH has another option to help avoid the crowd and traffic.
The Bryan-Gooding Planetarium at the Museum of Science and History will show the launch of Atlantis live.
The launch is scheduled for 11:26 a.m. Friday, July 8. The planetarium will open at 11 for paying guests to the museum.
On Fridays, the admission charge is $5.
"We are excited to share this historic moment with our visitors," said Planetarium Program Director Thomas Webber.
Once Atlantis returns from its planned 12-day trip to the International Space Station, Kennedy Space Center will no longer have an option to launch humans into space until the follow-up program, which is largely undetermined, begins.
