Space Center Houston Galaxy Lights

Bringing to life the story of Commander Quest with 3D Projection Mapping on the Saturn V rocket.

Space Center Houston is a leading science and space exploration learning center that strives to fuel the STEM pathway and be a gateway for space exploration, science, and engineering. Since opening in 1992, Space Center Houston has welcomed more than 22 million people and hosts nearly 1.25 million visitors annually in its 250,000-square-foot educational complex.

To celebrate the holiday season, Space Center Houston partnered with Reliant to create a new, innovative and fun experience for people of all ages: Galaxy Lights. This technologically advanced experience transformed and illuminated Space Center Houston with stunning space-themed installations via LED lights, interactive displays produced by Bright Lights Houston and a 3D projection mapping show on the side of the famous Saturn V Rocket created by VISION.

Space Center Houston’s Galaxy Lights is the most technologically advanced light display in Texas. The self-guided festive experience includes a full range of interactive and immersive light displays inside the center, in Independence Plaza and at Rocket Park.

  • 3D Projection Mapping:

    As part of the Space Center Houston’s Galaxy Lights experience, VISION transformed the 363-foot-long Saturn V Rocket into an out-of-this-world 3D Projection Mapping show designed to tell the inspiring story of a young boy and his trusty dog’s dream of going into space.

  • 3D Animation:

    Using 3D animation and motion graphics, the VISION team brought to life the story of Commander Quest and his robot dog that was projected on the Saturn V Rocket during the Galaxy Lights holiday extravaganza at Space Center Houston.

Galaxy Lights is one way Space Center Houston strives to spark curiosity in their guests to learn about the latest advances in light technology when they visit the center for the holiday season. VISION is honored to be a part of this new holiday tradition in Houston—helping curiosity, innovation and space exploration live ON.
