NASA, Houston

Okay, I need to finish blogging about Houston. It makes me miss it too much. So here's the last blog post about our visit to Johnson Space Center or NASA. I am not very knowledgeable when it comes to astronomy, physics, math, and outer space. So it was really cool to learn a little bit more about the universe and what it's like to be an astronaut. Unfortunately, we didn't get to go on the train tour of the whole space center. It was pouring so they had to cancel the tour. Bummer :/ Even so, we still had a good time exploring.  

One of the attractions: Angry Birds Space Matrix. It's basically a playground for children. It's cool!

This looks amazing! I wish it were real!

The future of frozen yogurt: operated by robots

Design your own yogurt and your robot will serve it to you

This room was really cool. I felt like I was in space, surrounded by thousands of stars! 

Moon exhibit. This is what they used to explore the moon.

Lunar Sample Vault. 

Moon rocks!

A creepy picture. See that guy in back of us?

I really really want to know what it's like to float in the air!

I am amazed by the technology and all the advancements human kind have made. Even though we still don't know all there is to know about the whole universe, all the discoveries we've made and experiments we do outer space has not only improved human lives but has humbled many of us. It is mind-boggling to think about all the stars, moons, planets, galaxies, and everything about space. It further demonstrates that we are not alone. I love knowing that Heavenly Father created all of these for us, despite how small we are. We truly live in an amazing world.
