The NASA Stennis Space Center is home to America’s largest rocket engine test complex where all space shuttle main engines are tested and proven flight worthy and future engines and stages will be tested. This site in Hancock County was chosen because of its water access, essential for transporting large rocket stages, and its remoteness, providing a sound buffer of close to 125,000 acres. Tours of StenniSphere, the visitor center, depart from the Launch Pad at the Hancock County Welcome Center, where this microbox resides.
From I10 near the western border of Mississippi, take exit 2 south to the Hancock County Welcome Center and park by the last covered picnic table (#2) on right.
Walk to the picnic table and continue north 40 steps to a multi-trunk tree. Microbox is behind the first 2 trunks under bark. Please be discreet and replace as described.
