I always thought space was interesting in theory. So I was excited that the New Mexico Museum of Space History and International Space Hall of Fame was in town. You know what I forgot? Space travel = science. I don’t understand science. At all.
Despite not understand most of what I was looking at, it was pretty cool to see a bunch of rockets, space suits, and photos.
Tell me the above suit doesn’t look like it could be an early version of a Cyberman?
As soon as I saw the dress up area, I immediately ran over. I’m only 5 feet tall so I can usually fit in a child’s 14-16 pretty easily. As I was getting dressed, I saw two adult-sized costumes on the opposite wall. Of course I pulled Cass over. He likes to pretend like I made him. But we all know he wanted to.
PS – Do you know how hard it is to kiss with space helmets on? I think we each came out of that picture with something hurt.
On our way out, we stopped by Ham’s grave site. He was the famous chimp launched into space. After his death, they transferred his remains to the museum for burial.
It was a good way to spend a rainy day and I got to knock another item off my New Mexico bucket list.
