We had a fun time at Stennis Space Center. The welcome center and museum are closing! Disappointed to know that such an educational center is no longer going to be available. However, there will be another science museum with tours of the space center opening a short distance away. Here is a short virtual tour for those that will never get to visit.
This is one of the rocket engine testing sites!!! When Stennis tested the engines for the Apollo projects, viewers had to be, at least, 4 miles from the testing site. The vibrations caused by the testing showed up as earthquakes on seismographs. The base of the testing site is the size of a football field.
Lil Sis “landing” the space shuttle. If her performance is any indication of her driving skills, she will NEVER drive 🙂
