Mission: SPACE Attraction in Future World at Epcot, taking the place of Horizons, sponsored by Hewlett Packard. Opened August 15, 2003. Guests find themselves 40 years in the future, where spaceflight is routine for ordinary citizens. After a quick course in spaceflight at the ISTC (International Space Training Center), the trainees have a briefing on their training mission and embark for Mars. They experience the sensations and sounds of a shuttle launch, including high g-forces (using centrifuge technology). During the mission, the team encounters challenges and each team member has a task to perform. When they return to Earth, guests move on to interactive experiences in the Advanced Training Lab.
