NASA Johnson Space Center, Houston
Mission control was interesting to me-amazing how they managed to send people to the moon with this technology!To see how small a Apollo Capsule have been...scary!
A very good vacation trip for schoolchildren & families alike. A nice outing like this both educational & meaningful.
Strictly for the space buffs. If you love space and space travel you will love the Space Center if not, this is not the place for you.
Houston, TX is a very hot place , taking a tour in the space center is a great way to cool down, and to learn a bit about space travel history.
You can try your hand at landing a shuttle at one of the simulators. It is not easy trying to land one of these space shuttles.. but it is sure fun trying.
After many visits to Houston I finally made it to the Johnson Space Center. Having been a space fan all my life this was a must !
The Tram takes you behind the scenes, including the X-38 Assembly Building and the Shuttle Mock-up Facility.
It now has an IMAX theatre which shows some unique movie footage from space.
Dont miss this !!!!!!!
