My favorite part of the Kennedy Space Center other than the IMAX theaters is the Rocket Garden, a wonderful history of the U.S. space program. The Saturn V is pictured lying horizontally because it's too tall to display vertically. My Rockets of the World Chart gives a good comparison of the Saturn V bottom right to the shuttle, second from the left in the bottom row. It always amazes me when I see the small cramped capsule where the astronauts were seated. The shuttle's crew compartment is so much larger and the fact that they can move around once in space has got to be a plus.

This looks so cool! I haven't been to Kennedy Space Center in years.

just a quick note to say thank you for all the photos.

Meeting with Karen tomorrow to see 'Zorro!'

Love the pictures of the rockets - someday I will get to visit there.

And if Jasper ever wants to travel he will be more than welcome in London! He is adorable.

The Space Center is a favorite of mine. Once a year they have a 3-day open house to all Brevard County residents and I like to take advantage of that and do a yearly visit.

Eli, thanks for your comments. Sounds like you've had a great visit(s) with Karen. Jasper, and especially I, would lokve to come to London!
