We could not go to Huntsville without visiting the Marshall Space Flight Center and the U.S. Space and Rocket Center.
The Saturn V rocket exhibit was amazing. The stages were separated so you could see how it worked. The back of the rocket was amazing.
There was a neat interactive on how to land the space shuttle. It is good thing that Christine works for NASA and not me.
There were two other exhibits. One on the Army and the technologies they use. John tried an interactive on an actual Avenger Missile System Table Top Trainer.
Remember a couple of days ago, we saw the Delta Mariner taking rockets from United Launch Alliance? ULA had an exhibit and showed this picture of a rocket being loaded on the Delta Mariner in Decatur, AL.
After lunch, we headed back to the marina where our friends, Tom and Carolynn, had docked their boat Su Sueno. They have already been up to Chattanooga and are heading back down the Tennessee to get on the Tenn Tom Waterway. It was good to see them again.
Tomorrow, we head up the Tennessee to Goose Pond Marina, where we have a package waiting for us.
