Manned spaceflight

As a child, I dreamed of being an astronaut. Alas, being a myopic female, non-pilot, non-scientist ruled out any possibility of achieving that dream. And I don't see any space travel in my future as a tourist. Sigh. However, that hasn't dampened my enthusiasm for all things related to space.

You can imagine my happiness in Washington D.C. when we visited both locations of the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum.

The star exhibit at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center (near Dulles airport) is the Space Shuttle Discovery.
