a little more NASA fun

Here are a few more miniatures and replicas provided by NASA and the Smithsonian for the John Glenn 50th Anniversary celebrations.  You can see why a few of these are in cases, who wouldn't want to take this home?

 A lunar rover tire - how cool is that?!































































This rover was extremely impressive in person.  It was definitely a favorite among all of the items.
Um, yea, don't ask me how they brought this one in.  We were actually there while they were loading in some of the stuff, but this was already put together and set up when we arrived.





























A close up of the tires.


 One more shot from the gala dinner, which ultimately raised $3M for scholarships.
