It was an awesome experience to tour the @kennedyspacecenter during our work trip to Orlando. Like many, I wanted to be an 👨🚀 when I was a kid, and this place reignited a passion in me I had long forgotten. @nasa thank you for inspiring us all.
Also really love this picture that @sinclairart took of my space shuttle pin a little while back. Thanks for looking!
I have the LEGO shuttle polybag--though I haven't opened it--so naturally I had to have this ridiculously perfect pin from @spacewalkpins. I nabbed one of his Laika pins too. 🚀🌌🐶 #enamelpins#space#lego#spaceshuttle
Trying out something new. I had great fun making this one!
These are ceramic heat shield tiles, part of the Space Shuttle Thermal Protection System, on the underside of the space shuttle Atlantis. This amazing piece of technology is on display at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. It was amazing to be able to walk around and just marvel at this incredible machine. #spacecoast#space#nasa#atlantis#spaceshuttle

Começando 7:30 da noite (horário dos Estados Unidos) e com melhor visibilidade entre meia noite e 4 da manhã, segundo a NASA. 🌟🌙✨💫 Beijinhos e boa sorte no seu encontrinho com o céu hoje à noite, da menina que sempre quis ser astrônoma até descobrir que isso demandaria muita matemática. 🙈😂😬 Ah, não esqueça de fazer seus desejos porque os meteoros são as famosas estrelas cadentes! :D
