Among the improvements the TCF is seeing is a mock up of the International Space Station!
A little further down the road are plans to enclose the TCF such that trainees on their missions will see stars in the sky and a sunrise every 45 minutes!
Another addition on the way somewhat reminiscent of Space Academy Level II’s former EDMs: “A Habitation Module is also planned, which will allow for extended simulated shuttle missions, including overnight missions that could span 24-hours.”
Exciting changes indeed!
