In the shuttle exhibit, there was a mini-international space station made out of these clear tubes for the kids to climb through, suspended a floor above the ground floor. Jeff went down to get a picture of Clara and Charlie climbing through – that’s them in the front part of the tube. They said it was definitely a little creepy – but not so much they didn’t want to do it more than once 🙂
Almost without exception, the movies they showed about all the different aspects of space travel were so, so interesting. A lot of times I think scientific movies are sort of a snooze fest, but Clara could not tear herself away from the one about the Hubble Telescope about the launching, the immediate problems that had to be fixed, and the return trips by the shuttle to repair it. I couldn’t quit watching, either, once I started.
