    My wifel finally talked me into going to the Space Center after 18 years here in Houston. I had a BLAST!

    Nice pics, thanks. The pics of the moon rocks reminded me of NASA's ability to track these samples:
    NASA has lost or misplaced more than 500 of the moon rocks its Apollo astronauts collected and brought back to Earth, according to a new agency report
    "NASA has been experiencing loss of astromaterials since lunar samples were first returned by Apollo missions," inspector general Paul K. Martin detailed in the report. "In addition to the Mount Cuba disk, NASA confirmed that 516 other loaned astromaterials have been lost or stolen between 1970 and June 2010, including 18 lunar samples reported lost by a researcher in 2010 and 218 lunar and meteorite samples stolen from a researcher in 2002."
    And while the agency reported the 517 missing moon rock samples, even more of these precious materials may have gone astray, according to the report.
    Mount Cuba Disk
    NASA had loaned the display, which contained three lunar soil and three moon rock samples, to the observatory in 1978. The loan agreement between the two organizations had expired however, in June 2008.
    As a result of an administrative oversight and the lack of a system to adequately track renewal dates for long-term loans, the exhibits manager did not contact Mount Cuba regarding the loan until February 2010.
    At that time, it was learned that the employee responsible for safe-keeping the disk had died the previous year and that the observatory could not locate the sample.

    So excellent pictures sir.
    I remember I made a Gemini scale model when I was a kid.
    It was cool with the white skirt.
    Thanks for sharing !
