Today Nancy took us to the Space Center in Huntsville, Alabama. This is one of the Space Shuttles. It is setting on its two solid rocket boosters and large external fuel tank. This would be standing up right when launched and the stuff would be dumped into the ocean when used up.
This is the Space Pod that the kids go in when they go to space camp. The schools have a program where the kids go to camp for one week and learn all about space. What a wonderful experience.
