Thanks for posting these. Looks like you could fill a full day there.

 

A few years ago the 747 and Space Shuttle combo landed at the local regional airport (GGG) that has an exceptionally long runway. It was impressive to say the least.

So it was explained to me

NASA makes 3 of everything.

1 for training.

1 for backup.

1 for deployment.

So everything shown is as it’s cousin deployed in space.

Also shown is the Russian green docking system that’s as old as shuttle and still being used.

international space station is just that.

A world wide project with all politics set aside.

It’s not all high tec

Like all great designs they usually start out on a paper napkin with an idea scribbled down 

here’s a base camp made from cardboard

After deep space you get deep hunger.

A few miles away is a straight up fantastic BBQ that all should make the effort to visit.

Texas q done right.

 

I hope yiu have enjoyed my pictorial report of a very special place.

Persian Gulf Command

Those are really great pictures and it looks like you had a great time.  Also, looks like you had some awesome BBQ.  But where are the NASA Camouflage Uniforms?  You know the ones for the Space Walks, and the Moon.  I really want to see the experimental patterns for Mars!

Yep. My 10 year old daughter was in a "mood" on our trip to the Kennedy Space Center. Not real fun. Things changed instantly with a stop at the food court and gift shop. Just wish they were at the beginning of the tour, not the end. 

Great report and photos. That BBQ looks amazing!

Nice pics. I haven’t been there since my kids were in grade school. 
 

Killen’s often has a long line but since the pandemic started they deliver to my neighborhood. So we’ve ordered several times in the past six months. Expensive as all get out but very good.

Great photos. I have not been there is 20 years. Use to work there 98-01. Building nine has changed a lot.  Wonder why the Crew Cabin Trainer for the orbiter is still there?

It was slated to go to a museum. Don’t know what happened.
