Today is my day trip to Cape Canaveral and the Kennedy Space Center!
I had been here many years ago. how things have changed! I did enjoy the Rocket Park.
I thought the Soviet era Soyuz was pretty interesting.
And I thought the American astronauts were brave.
I bet the first cosmonauts who looked at this stuff on the outside just shrugged as thought….
… "Hey… what could go wrong?"
Imagine jamming yourself into a VW Beatle, sitting it on top of a stick of dynamite 36 stories tall, and telling them to light the fuse.
And once you were up there, staying up there in the VW fully dressed in all sorts of stuff for days.

Mission control has less computing power than my mobile phone.
