Food, fun, and fireworks for five dollars capped off the NASA shuttle era. It was a bitter sweet celebration held at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville this past Saturday evening.
Jeff and I enjoyed our time in the museum chronicling the development of the rockets that would get us to the moon and back. The huge Saturn V displayed horizontally inside is the biggest eye-catcher. Lots of families with young children were out, and I watched a little boy in an umbrella stroller roll under the Saturn V, clutching his tiny rocket model in his hand as his eyes took in the huge life size version overhead; a breathless "wowww" was the only thing he said. I think I know exactly how he felt!
