My Spacey Wacey day out

Published November 14, 2012 by theycallmemrstibbs

Here is my day where, as I call it, I geeked it up.

It all started by Chris doing some public outreach work at Science Fest, held at the California Science Center. He was there from early morning so I thought it would be good for me to have a look around the Science Center.

Of course the first thing I did was go for tea, then it was time to go around the center.

The one section I will be blogging about in this post was the Space and Air exhibit.

This had both reproduction and original space capsules and a Mars Rover. I did have lots of fun  going around this and for a change I wasn’t the only adult.

There was a piece of meteorite which I found very cool.

Then it was off to Science Fest. Not as Rock’n’Roll as it may sound but still wow it was fun. I got to go around and speak to lots of scientists working on new items like a parachute type object which was designed to help create power that will move satellites within space. Also I got lots of posters, stickers, magnets and pens/pencils.

Then I was told I could go and collect stamps from the different sections of the show so I could get a bag at the end of it. It was meant for children but most of the people on the exhibits were very impressed that I had nothing to do with astronomy but I went to support Chris.

I met up with both Chris and Mike Peel as we were then going to look at the Space Shuttle Endeavour.

I won this bag!!! Geeky I know but i love it.

When we got to where the shuttle was being displayed there were a lot of people queuing to go inside all with the same excitement as us.

When we got inside we were in complete awe at the shuttle and spent about an hour and a half walking around and taking masses of pictures of it.

Mock-up Mission Control So Cool!!!!!

The tiles underneath

The actual tyres from the shuttle, which we got to touch!!!

Then of course we had to buy something. so a T-shirt and  key ring each it was.

Sorry that this was so geeky, but it was awesome!!!!

    Living life with a chronic illness is definitely not easy. But I do my best to push through all the barriers this illness puts in front of me! In my heart and mind, I believe maintaining a positive outlook on all situations in life will carry us through to much better times! I hope you find the information that I provide both helpful and inspirational!
