space history

We passed Spaceport America on the way to Las Cruces; home of Virgin Galactic's two space ships.  We did not go out to the terminal but it was very intriguing...just the beginning of several space-themed visits including the New Mexico Museum of Space History.

The museum was filled with older relics from the space program: astronaut food, suits, rockets, satellites and information.  So many space shuttle missions and astronauts!! And, a whole floor dedicated to the rocket scientists who made trips to the moon and back smooth and safe.  Kris and I pondered the genius that our kids will strive to exceed: designers media aps???  Alright, maybe the crazy dedication of Elon Musk, compassion and tolerance of Pope Francis and the marketplace of ideas fostered by Neil deGrasse Tyson will set the stage for their generation.
