NASA’s Kennedy Space Center is set to the be the location of an after-hours “techno party.”

Named “Kennedy Under the Stars“, the event will see the US space agency’s research centre transformed into an out-of-this-world rave.

The debut event on February 2 is said to be a “DJ-led techno party” according to its website with glow-in-the-dark elements along with a neon mini golf section.

The Kennedy Space Center opened in 1962 and is one of NASA’s main launch sites working on both US government and commercial space trips including the Apollo 11 trip which saw Neil Armstrong become the first person to step foot on the Moon.

These attractions include the Spaceport KSC ride as well as the real artefacts such as the space shuttle Atlantis and a SpaceX Falcon 9 booster.
