Next stop, you step out of your space shuttle onto the dusty surface ... or that is step out of your bus and look out over the Moon Valley. Have plenty of film on hand, this is the closest simulation you'll find of the moon on earth (NASA envies the realism of this place). Eroding sand has left astounding clay formations that resemble the moon's surface. Standing on the very edge of the valley, you just may feel weightlessness. (B)
