Space Center HNT.....






Happy HNT everybody...
The second pic is the actual control room to the very first Apollo Mission..
The third is of the Discovery Space Shuttle
The fourth is the booster that launches the shuttle, there is more explosive power in that booster than the Hiroshima Atom bomb!!!
The last pic is my riding buddy Dave, he is standing in front of an actual Mercury Mission capsule..Imagine riding up in space in that tin can??..Tell me about bravery!!!!
One More installment....
Peace..!!

Wow, it gives the whole experience to the space age a different meaning having seen all this I bet.

What a wonderful educational experience Galen. Tin can is right eek I would have been looking for a can opener.

It is so good to see that you made it back home safely, I missed you. I do apologize for not getting over here earlier but it has not been the greatest week in my neck of the woods so I haven't been online at all.

HHNT!

I love the movie Apollo 13!

Looks like plenty of rocket power to put a crew over the moon. I'll bet it was a fun tour. The pictures look great.

Oh that is to cool. I went there once but I do not remember seeing as much. The control room was not as detailed. And there was not space shuttle stuff outside like there is now and those booster rockets, to cool. The only real cool thing I was able to do was catch a couple of launches out of the 6 to 10 times I was visiting my friends. The only thing better than that would have been to see a Saturn V launch. With how slow it went up I am sure it would be fantastic to see.

Thanks for sharing such a wonderful HNT G.

Mona said...

Galen? Is one supposed to wear dark glasses, medals & a fierce look to be able to ride ?

Strumpet said...

Galen,

I didn't get that.

Sorry.

Don't think I can.

Just wanted to let you know.

Got part of it, but won't be able to get all.
