Florida Today reports that there are early plans to build the world's largest Mars simulation in Titusville.
Interspace, a space-themed attraction and research facility, could open as early as 2016 and employ 200 workers, according to Mark Homnick, manager of NewSpace Center LLC, the company planning to build the complex.

The facility would let visitors spend a day or more in a 22,000-square-foot replica of Mars. guests at Interspace will train and have access to portions of the Mars simulation for about $90. Multi-day guests will become settlers who work and live in the simulation for about $750 a day, including food and lodging.

It'll be interesting to see how visitors 'interact' with this. Does this mean that you can only walk around inside the habitat and can only go out onto the 'Martian' soil in a space suit?

If so, that would be quite interesting indeed!

Sounds similar to the problem-plagued Biosphere project out in Arizona, only this time it's open to the public and will generate some income. The Titusville/KSC area is fast becoming 'the' space tourism mecca.
