Kennedy Space Center

With the excitement of the launch over, we paid a visit to Kennedy Space Center on Saturday.  It really is staggering to stop and think that only 58 years separate the Wright Brother’s first flight and the first manned space flight.  That’s really the blink of an eye.  If you’ve never been and you are fascinated with space flight, you really should go.  They have actual capsules you can climb into (just looking at a Mercury capsule made me claustrophobic.  Did you know that the final criteria for Mercury astronauts was whether they were small enough to fit into the capsule??), Apollo capsules on display that show streaking from the heat of re-entry, and Neil Armstrong’s actual space suit: lunar dust, scuffs and all.  Incredible stuff.
