NASA Scenic Byway to Space
The Byways to Space network is the only one of its kind in the United States. It includes six different routes that cover over 30 miles near and through the NASA Stennis Space Center’s buffer zone.
Much of the route is graced with the giant moss covered limbs of ancient oaks. Trails go through countryside and waterways, making a perfect journey for outdoor enthusiasts.
The NASA Scenic Byway to Space is the beginning point of this scenic route. It consists of more than 30 miles of land iside the Buffer Zone surrounding the Space Center. For a small fee, visitors can learn about early exploration and living in space. Visitors can also learn about rocket testing and see exhibits that display astronaut suits.
The northern end of the NASA Byway is the nation’s largest rocket engine test facility, the John C. Stennis Space Center. Several government agencies and private companies affiliated with aerospace and environmental issues.
