We started our day off Monday with the bus tour of the Space Center. It was so interesting seeing things that weren’t included in the immediate Visitor Center Area. We especially loved seeing the new tower they are building to shoot the new Orion into orbit, to take man out of low earth orbit, back to the moon and on to Mars. Wow.
The bus dropped us off at the Apollo/Saturn Center, which was absolutely fascinating, since there was much there about the Mercury 7 astronauts that I grew up idolizing. It was in the building where mission control was actually located for the Apollo launches, and the control center is still there. So cool.
