We got behind with our photographing Austin scedule, partly due to a trip to Houston and Glaveston (down on the bottom of Texas by the ocean ) so for one day only, today we give you a picture from a recent visit we made to Houston, Texas, home of the famous NASA, home of only such scientific trifles as, ooh, the Moon landing rocket, the space shuttles, you know. Little things like those.
This spacesuit is a nice old-fashioned style of the kind you can see in films like 2001 A Space Odyssey
. Modern ones are so high tech they cost twelve million dollars each. Gulp. But the earliest one they had on show looked like a boiler suit you would wear to clean the attic. Those early spacemen must have been really tough.
