Space Center

Today we went to the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center.  It was so cool!  They had a great Hall of Space Museum that I loved, and Jack thought the "rocketships & spacesuits" were cool.  They actually had the Apollo 13 command module and Jim Lovell's moon suit (which he never got to wear).  Jack's favorite part was the IMAX theatre, where we saw Sea Monsters.  Jack was a little afraid during a few shark moments, but overall he absolutely loved it.  Then we saw a planetarium show.  It was in a planetarium not much bigger than mine, with an old Spitz star machine like mine.  We were the only ones in the planetarium, so I got to take a look at the control boards, and they were just as old as ours! They use MS/DOS for programming shows, too.  Jack fell asleep during the show, so we left soon after that.
