This is me!This is me!This is me!

Imagining what it would be like incapsulated and floating around in space.
As our friends are selling their homes in the Houston area, we guess that this should be our last planned trip here. We used this last couple of weeks to really explore all that Houston has to offer. Visiting the beautiful parks, eat at incredible restaurants, ride bikes on the abundant paths, and of course visit the Space Center. Don signed us up for about every extra opportunity the center had to offer. We rode the simulator ride, toured the area, visited the historic mission control center, and spent the entire day exploring. I didn't think I would like it as much as I did. There was a plethora of information from NASA's past and how we got where we are today and a peak at the future endeavors. It really makes the mind work, will we sustain life on Mars? Is it necessary? What are we doing to the planet earth, and what could we do better?

If you are ever visiting the Houston area, I highly recommend this stop. Even if this isn't your topic of interest, there seems to be something for everyone.

Some beautiful paths can’t be discovered without getting lost.

Historic Mission Control Center: We toured the actual communication room used for the Apollo 11 landing. Check out this website for more information and to hear the actual audio of "The eagle has landed". Goosebumps! https://spacecenter.org/exhibits-and-experiences/nasa-tram-tour/historic-mission-control/
