"Correspondent Cat Schwartz went behind the scenes at Disney World to discover the technology behind two rides, Mission: Space and Test Track. Mike Lentz, project manager for the rides, explained that “Imagineering is about blending technology and storytelling.” The car ride Test Track is actually the most advanced ride at Disney World; each car has more computing power than the space shuttle, with industrial computers built specifically for the show. How much do they cost? “That’s a Disney secret – magic isn’t cheap,” Lentz said. Set 40 years in the future, Mission: Space utilizes actual NASA training technology and imagery to make people feel as if they are traveling into space."
