Last weekend Sue and I drove down to Houston to see our good friend Matt who is in the hospital there. He has had some serious health problems and needed some encouragement. We had a great visit and met his new wife Karen. While we were there we took a little time to visit the NASA Space Center which was very near the hospital. There is a tram that takes you on a 45 minute tour of the whole facility to see lots of rockets and neat stuff. There was a 30 minute wait for the tram so we decided to pass on the tour and go inside.
There were tropical storms over Northern Mexico and into the Texas Gulf coast. It rained in front of us on the way down and behind us on the way back, but we ran on dry road. Maybe somebody was looking after us.
Inside the museum is a kid paradise with wall to wall hands-on attractions that teach as well as entertain. This is a panorama of the place. Click on the panorama to get a larger view. I took 6 photos and stitched them together with Autostitch to get this. If you are in Houston check out the Space Center.
