What a wonderful week for space exploration. Blue Origin made history this past week, taking the oldest astronaut (William Shatner [aka Captain Kirk] to space. Space has always been so fascinating to so many people. With the space race heating up between Blue Origin and Space X. They both are on a journey to take civilians to space.
As these companies get more mature, there will be opportunities for us all to take a voyage to outer space. In the meantime, NASA Space Centers are available here in the USA to satisfy our hunger for space. One such visit to one of those centers (particularly the moon section of the Johnson Space Center) is captured here:youtube.com/shorts/X5fd5weUA9s
As you can see, the moon ambiance was in full effect😃. It contained astronauts, moon craters, Lunar Rover Vehicles etc. You had the feeling that you were in space as you walked around the exhibit. As you can see from the video, there were quite a few people visiting the moon exhibit that day.
Hopefully you will take the opportunity to visit one of the NASA Space Centers. It is very family friendly and the kids will definitely enjoy the experience. I was hoping to experience a zero gravity room but alas we have not quite gotten to that point as of yet. 😂
Space – the most definite final frontier! Going to the moon and outer space is something that will be more of a reality for outer space seekers as time goes on. Until then, take a look at this visit to the moon gallery at NASA: youtube.com/shorts/5P4hd72Gm_0
This was such a cool experience that I thoroughly loved it 🥰. As I indicated in my previous post, if you have never visited NASA, do yourself a favor and take a visit. There is just a natural fascination with space. The unknown provides so much mystery and excitement at the same time.
Almost the feeling (but to a greater degree) that you get when you have never been to a place but you have always thought it would be cool to go. We have often wondered if there is intelligent life out there also. Due to this natural curiosity, we explore and explore some more.
Space X and Blue Origin are making space dreams come true. They are boldly going out in space during a time in which there is so much curiosity and demand to go. Before these companies, it was just NASA the original pioneers in space exploration😀
How I love to visit NASA!😃Such a great place to go and explore. Maybe it is just my fascination with all things space. I would love to be able to visit space one of these days. Looks like that is starting to happen these days, with different SpaceX missions. In the meantime, I took a NASA visit to the moon and it is captured here: youtube.com/shorts/kFC8nYzFeZ8
I guess my first love for all things space started with the movie E.T. and with the Star Wars movies. Both really peaked my interest in space, in addition to the different space launch missions from NASA. Visiting Cape Canaveral as a kid really put my love for space over the top!😃
The above video was taken at the NASA Johnson Space Center located in Houston, Texas. If you have ever heard of the saying, “Houston, we have a problem” – the person that said it, said it at the Johnson Space Center. Fun fact😃!
This moon exhibit was located in an area that is called the Astronaut Gallery. There you can take cool pictures and videos of the moon, in addition to touring a space shuttle. There are so many other activities that make for a long and enjoyable day. I definitely recommend visiting this wonderful place especially if you are a lover of all things space l, like I am!
In honor of Star Wars Day – Check out the new space video posted on my YouTube channel: 👉youtube.com/shorts/DzWjnp59HGY
It was so much fun visiting this gallery, which was unlike anything that I have ever experienced! It was nice to see the gallery that mimics the life of astronauts within a space station in outer space.
As you view the video, you will see a zero gravity room which will demonstrate how it is done in outer space. Would definitely be great to experience this feeling in outer space or if somehow engineers could develop a way to perform it here in earth 🌍.
There were so many different sights and sounds from my day at NASA. I will be sharing more on this blog in the near future. In the meantime, Happy Star Wars Day! 😃
