Day 68: Space Museum

November 15, 2012

Went to the Space Museum.  It was interesting because it was mostly US space missions and such. However, it was also disappointing that we did not get to compare the Chinese or Russian space program, uniforms, missions and such.  The kids had a great time.  I think Alexis almost lost her flip-flops on the anti-gravity walk!  She would wear flip-flops on the moon! Emma loved learning how the astronauts wash their hands in space to avoid flying water droplets.  Everyone got to crash a hang glider simulator.  And some missions were aborted due to the inability to control their laser--good thing the real astronauts are good at their jobs.  It was really funny watching them eat and work out too.  We ended by trying Neopolitan ice cream and chocolate chip mint ice cream dehydrated outer space style!  Yuk!  The kids loved it!
