We had this day all planned out to go to the beach, relax a little and get ready for our cruise. Well the weather did not change any. I could post the same gloomy pictures from Saturday but I think you get the point. So after hanging around at the hotel for about an hour we decided that we either had to get out or we might just start hurting each other. So we looked at all the options and we had... Go to the beach, take a taxi to Kennedy Space Center and walk around in the rain, go to the beach, or go to the beach. Since we were going to get wet no matter what we did we decided that we would go to Kennedy.
Got lots of pictures so will just dump them here and you can browse.

Shuttle Simulation Building

We went on a ride that simulated the launch of the Space shuttle. Obviously can't do the 3 G's but it sure felt like it. It was REALLY cool.

Shuttle crawler

Travels a whooping 4 MPH and takes the shuttle to the launch pad

Shuttle Pad

If you zoom in you will see the space shuttle on the pad waiting for takeoff. We missed the launch by 1 scheduled day, but actually 2 days due to weather.

New launch pad

This was the pad for the new launch site but is being shut down by the Obama administration.


Kennedy Space center looking to lay off 5000 people if Obama shuts down the new launches into outer space.
All the ideas, and new compounds, etc that NASA design or come up with are open for patent to the first company that files it. They are not allowed to patent any of their inventions. Guess I should keep my eyes out on their inventions and try and beat the other million companies looking at them also.
Well not much else going on this day so lets head on over to Monday.
