Last weekend was my 38th high school reunion (technically it was the 40th, but that was for the Class of ’72 – and our reunions are multi-class events.) This was the first reunion I have been able to make, and I am pretty much devoting this week’s blog posts to it.
That includes my (Almost) Wordless Wednesday post, which features pictures from our tour of NASA’s Johnson Space Center. Enjoy!
The entrance to Space Center Houston. With a pair of T-38s on static display.
Longhorn Cattle. At NASA/JSC. Welcome to Texas, y’all!
Mission Control Center, from the outside.
One of the Mission Control rooms, from the visitor’s gallery.
The Astronaut Memorial Grove at JSC.
At Rocket Park: a Redstone rocket, used in the Mercury program.
At Rocket Park: a Little Joe II rocket, used for Apollo test flights.
At Rocket Park: a restored Saturn V. The last one built, it never flew.
Saturn V rocket, showing the first and second stages.
The space shuttle mockup “Explorer”, seen from the tram ride at JSC.
Another view of Shuttle mockup “Explorer”, seen from the parking lot at Space Center Houston. It may not be a *real* shuttle, but we will be able to go inside!
I was glad the weather cooperated and cooled down, so I could make the tour. Also, that my camera performed like a champ! Check back throughout the week for more pics from Reunion 2012! And, have a Happy WW!
