Up even earlier today - the pain!! Had done most of our packing beforehand but Jordan had one of his infamously well timed blood noses which gave us a minor-ish delay. Breakfast good ol' vegemite biscuits slash scones. We had our final information overload of Space history (today was about the shuttle program) & then got to see how much of this info we'd retained with a Jeopardy type game called 'Space Bowl' ...
... bored so decided to do his own kind of unprotected spacewalk. Speaking of unprotected, Jordan was looking at a big map of the US & mispronounced Virginia... After an early dinner we found our rocket launch was cancelled due to a storm coming in so we partied on aka history lesson about Gemini & Apollo missions & then Commercial Space travel.

A real live space shuttle on site, gives perspective on its immense size and the how astronauts can make there way to space. Precision is a must! What a great day! Off to bed as we pack for a vacation on our vacation...Gatlinburg, Tennessee (borders the Great Smoky Mountains National Park), here we ...
