Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex Kicks Off the Season with Debut of Holidays in Space Show

High-Tech Festive Video Display to Run Through January 1*

Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex launched its holiday season last night with the premiere of the Holidays in Space video display, which this year provided visitors with a glimpse of a future Mars habitat. The custom space- and holiday-themed projection mapping show set against the side of a Saturn 1B rocket enthralled the crowd as they viewed from a one-of-a-kind outdoor cinematic setting amid the visitor complex’s Rocket Garden. The show also featured historic footage of actual launches, awe-inspiring views of earth and a breathtaking pyrotechnics display.

“Each year our ‘Holidays in Space’ program has more surprises and enhancements for our guests,” said Therrin Protze, chief operating officer, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. “We are focused on telling the great NASA story in a way that is memorable and exciting for all. This year’s show is enhanced so much that it is truly unforgettable!”
The dazzling projection display will run nightly through January 1, 2017, with the exception of Dec. 25. *
In addition to the nightly show, the visitor complex also is adorned for the holidays with a stunning array of decorations, including a 35-foot-tall holiday mosaic tree, illuminated shooting stars and the NASA insignia “dressed up” for the season.
