For this round of Alphabe-Thursday I'm going to try and take you on a journey around my neck of the woods...Houston, Texas.
I drove over to Space Center Houston today which is located right next to the Johnson Space Center. I like you but I didn't want to pay the $16.95 price to get inside. It's $16.95 online or $21.95 at the door and that's Senior Citizen prices. So, I had to go to the free little park they have right outside the entrance. I know I've taken pictures here before, but it's FREE!
This is a fake APPOLO capsule. NASA doesn't call it fake...that's my terminology. These prototype command modules were called boilerplates by NASA and were used for preflight testing. I have no idea why they called them boilerplates. Kind of a strange name...huh?
here for those locations.
If you'd like to learn more about the APOLLO program this documentary was made for the 40th Anniversary of the APOLLO program by NASA.
Now head over to Jenny's blog for a list of this week's participants. Thank you for visiting!
