Gimme Some Space

We visited Kennedy Space Center yesterday. I had never been there before. It is “awesome” in the truest sense of the word:

Large Vehicle Assembly Building. Not bad for a photo snapped through a window of a moving tour bus. [Photo by me, 2014.]

Front of shuttle Atlantis. The whole ship is on display, but getting the entire spacecraft into one photograph seems almost impossible. Kennedy Space Center Visitor Center. [Photo by me, 2014.]

We had thought we might have been incredibly lucky and seen a launch. SpaceX, a private company leasing space from NASA, had delayed the launch of a Falcon 9 rocket to yesterday. Unfortunately, though, the space gods did not look fondly on yesterday either, and the launch was scrubbed yet again. Oh, well, these things happen, we and hundreds of others who waited to see it until 7:01pm were told when it was canceled.

One other thing. In case you were unsure, yes… image …I can manage a dopey tourist “selfie” too. ๐Ÿ˜‰
