Congratulations to my sister on getting a job with NASA!
We went down to visit the facilities where she will be working since we were visiting the area to apartment hunt with her. On site, they have a small space museum, and since my first graders are studying the solar system in science right now, I went picture happy so I could bring them back all sorts of pictures from my trip.
Here’s just a few– this is a Delta Launch Vehicle:
And yours truly acting like a complete four year old inside of a Gemini Space Craft (I thought my students might get a kick out of this picture!) I was shocked to read that some astronauts spend up to two weeks inside this capsule- can you imagine not being able to do anything but sit inside of there for two weeks? I got antsy on the four hour drive down to the NASA facility- I don’t think I could do two weeks!
