The InfoAge Space Exploration Center
2300 Marconi Road Wall Township, NJ 732-280-3000
Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday
You may not realize it, but since in its original iteration as a NASA tracking station in the ‘60s through later use as a Department of Defense satellite data collection point, the facility intentionally kept its activities on the down low.
Today, the InfoAge Space Exploration Center (ISEC) is known in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) circles for its range of hands-on educational and research opportunities. Scientific instruments at InfoAge include the TLM-18 Radio Dish Antenna, optical telescopes, weather observation and radar displays including satellites, modules from the Apollo Guidance Computer and an American Flag flown to the moon and back.
The facility is open to the public. Special public events are offered throughout the year. ISEC offers a variety of educational activities, including our Space Week summer camp program.

Do the Moon Bounce at ISEC!
The TLM18 radio dish antenna is being maintained until further notice. When the dish is updated we will resume EME.
At ISEC we communicate with the Moon with EME (Earth Moon Earth) transmission. On days that the moon is in the sky when ISEC is open everyone who attends will be able to hear their voice travel to the moon and back making the 500,000 mile journey.
