Interview with Philip from Kennedy Space Center

Hey Thrill Seekers!

Welcome to the first instalment of this years series of interviews which we have now named ‘Tuesday Talk’ 

First up we have Philip Briton from Kennedy Space Center who you may remember from our OAT live episode!

Name: Philip Britton

Company: Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex

Position: UK & Ireland Account Manager

Getting to know you..

How would you describe your job to a child?

I work with Space Rockets, Astronauts and talk to lots of people about exploring space and reaching for the Stars!

What was the last thing you watched on TV and why did you watch it?

Channel 4 news last night. Keeping up with domestic and world events in an informed manner is important to me

If there was a movie produced about your life, who would play you and why?

I don’t really watch many movies but have always liked aircraft, Top gun was and remains a favourite. I don’t really think a story about my life would sell too many box office tickets!

If you could choose one song to play every time you walked into a room for the rest of your life, what would it be?

At University in 1994 – 97 it was the height of Britpop and a musical revolution. Oasis were and remain hugely influential to me, most songs from Definitely Maybe and What’s the Story Morning Glory?, would suffice and on a coin toss it would be Columbia v Some Might Say!

Work..

Describe your theme park / attraction using only 3 words.

Inspirational / Educational / Real!

Favourite theme park / attraction of 2018?

KSC and Space Shuttle Atlantis

What is going to be BIG for your company in 2019?

50 years since man 1st set foot on the moon and a number of commemorative events will happen across the year.

Tell us a fact about your theme park / attraction that most people don’t know.

KSC is the only place in Florida you can watch a rocket launch into space from, It’s a fantastic experience and everyone should try and get to see us.

What is a must do for first time visitors to Orlando?

One day at KSC will open your eyes to mans achievements both past and present in our quest for the stars and what the future of space exploration will bring…..with the Journey to Mars.

So there we have it. I’d like to thank Philip for his time, i’m yet to visit Kennedy Space Center but everyone here who has been has absolutely loved it and i would loveeee to see a rocket launch one day!!

Come back next Tuesday for another instalment of Tuesday Talk!
