NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration)

"Houston, we have a problem! Houston, we have a problem!"

Yeap, you guessed right. Today, am taking you guys on a tour inside NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration). A visit to Houston is not complete until you've seen NASA. Once a year, teachers visit the space center for the Educators Open House. It is an opportunity to present to teachers the new discoveries and additional features available at NASA. This is done in preparation for future field trips. 








The first watch worn on the moon.



This is the original command center that launched Neil Armstrong and company, aboard Apollo 11

I am always excited for Tuesday to come because I can share about "my world." Thank you to Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy and Sylvia for hosting this wonderful meme. Thank you guys!

Oh-- this brings back memories for me, Tes, for you see I used to live in Clear Lake. I lived there for 12 yrs. and was there when they built the Space Museum at NASA. Isn't it wonderful??????

Thanks for the pictures, and for bringing back so many memories.
Hugs,
Betsy

Thanks for taking us on the tour of NASA. I've been to Houston a couple of times, but have never been to NASA. I would really enjoy visiting there.
