More Historical Space Center Pictures. The Imaginarium

 

I'm not particularly photogenic.  That being said, I like this photograph.
It is me at my station in the Voyager's Control Room.   I spent 22 years of my life in that chair
educating and entertaining over 300,000 people 


Hello Troops,
I've got several pictures of the old staff taken over a decade ago taken by Mrs. Houston that I need to get posted so I can return them to her.  I've probably posted some of them - I can't remember.  I'll post them all in the interest of making sure they get posted.   Forgive the repeats and enjoy the new ones.

This is the goodbye party for Admiral Dave Wall.  Dave and his brother build the

Your Daily Dose of Science


The Imaginarium
Your imagination is like a muscle; it will grow weak and useless if not exercised.  The Imaginarium is a place where creativity and imagination are celebrated.  Remember to always make the ordinary, extraordinary.



This pretty much sums in all up.

This student deserves an A for trying to have it both ways.
True?  False?  Would any teacher be fooled?

 

Good point,  however......

 

I dream of a world where the lamb can lay down with the lion.
