Inside NASA's Visitor Center

Photo op! NASA provided a cut-out picture of space suit so that everyone can look like a lunar explorer.

Short films were shown on a large globe. When an earthquake was depicted, the globe shook.

Another film told the story of the water cycle. NASA studies the earth as well as space. They are tracking climate change.

Several displays depicted huge research balloons. The one shown here has a football field superimposed to make the point that the balloon is larger than a football field! Imagine spotting that floating in the sky! I imagine it would appear to be a UFO.

    Looks like a fascinating place.
