A Trip to the Johnson Space Center

My family and I recently took a trip to the Johnson Space Center in Houston to catch a glimpse of the science and engineering that have been a part of the NASA space program for the past several decades. Among other things, we were able to take a close-up look at a Saturn V rocket plus see the mission control center used for the Apollo lunar missions, and the training area used to acquaint astronauts with equipment used on the space shuttles and international space station.

The Saturn V exhibit was particularly impressive as the multistage Saturn V holds the distinction of being the tallest, heaviest and most powerful rocket ever put into operation. At 363 feet in length, the Saturn V is longer than a football field.
