AUGUST 17

Engage with the most comprehensive collection of U.S. manned spaceflight hardware in the world, in the place where America’s space program began: the U.S. Space & Rocket Center (USSRC). Military rocketry, a Saturn V rocket, the Apollo program, and a Space Shuttle test simulator are part of the wealth of material at USSRC. We will then head for our cushy 4.5-star, extremely well located hotel in Nashville, 111 miles away (a two-hour, fifteen-minute drive). Meet your fellow eclipse buffs at a social reception and welcoming dinner.
