Space Center Houston

To infinity and beyond!


I found myself in San Antonio, Texas several months ago for a conference, and afterwards I decided to take the 4hrs bus ride to Houston to visit my dear brother.


It was fun! We don't see other often so it was a wonderful opportunity to catch up and visit places he enjoy.


One of the places we went to was the Space Center Houston.

We took pictures of ourselves in front of old space shuttles, I believe this particular one is called Explorer.

Then, we took a ride that tours the different facilities within the grounds, including the one housing Saturn V,  and the Mission Control room (the old one).

After the tour, my brother and I went down to the plaza for lunch and goofed around afterwards.


(By the way, if you are going to put on a space helmet (like I did below), sanitize the inside first, everyones face goes inside that thing.)

Despite the blazing heat in the middle of March, it was fun, and educational. Not a lot of things are.


To infinity and beyond!
