Today, my daughter and I visited the Columbia Memorial Space Center in Downey. We had a great time with the interactive exhibits.
At this exhibit, you could launch paper airplanes. The goal was to fly the plane through a hoop about 10 feet away.
Here, you could see how much you would weigh on other planets.
Mercury — good! Jupiter — bad!
Here, you could land the space shuttle. It was not pretty! :-(
At this exhibit, you could use the yoke, the rudder, and the throttle to take off, turn, and land this plane.
