If anyone asked JBM what we were doing for February break, his answer was "Going to Kennedy Space Center." So, of course, our trip would not have been complete without a visit to KSC. What a fun day.....included a briefing on the current mission, lunch with an astronaut and a tour of both my childhood and JBM's present space life. I do not think anyone can appreciate how primitive our space program was and how brave early astronauts were until you see up close what surrounded them in space. We also realized how far we have come and how far we have to go.
On a side note, JBM walked up to our tour guide at the first photo stop and told him that he planned to be the first astronaut to walk on Mars. He is about the right age...
