Challenger Center receives simulators, sees cut in expenses

(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — But, Lockport’s center will differ a little as it will also attempt to draw tourists.Schwartz said the Challenger Center is looking at shortening some of the missions, possibly down to 45 to 50 minutes. That would allow for tourists to stop by, but not have to spend all day at the center for missions that last much longer.

The Challenger Center will also cater to families and community groups. Camps will be run and the planetarium will see a lot of use during the summer.

CHALLENGER CENTER OF ORLEANS, NIAGARA AND ERIE COUNTIES • LOCATION: 160 Washburn St. • CONTACT: By phone, 208 2404, on Facebook or online at CLCLockport.org
