Sometimes it really does take a Rocket Scientist. ;)

 





Normally I'd let that just sit there, unfortunately Brian's reading this thread and he is too aware of some of my less than "stellar" ideas.
So I'll just ask a somewhat unrelated question: What is that flag behind the Saturn, and why is it at half staff (who died just before your visit)?

What did you have to do in order to get that thing to stick straight up that way (easy boys, easy now)?

I down loaded it, spun it 90 degrees (using whatever the default stuff Windows 10 uses for displaying photos) and rehosted it in my smugmug account. Today I tried up loading it here into a ZG/GTR Fanatics gallery fully expecting it to be turned sideways by the gallery software.....but no..
..maybe I just have the magic touch (don't get any ideas boyz!) to make a big rocket stay upright.  ???



I suspect (especially if you took that photo with a phone) that something was stripped off of the photos metadata when I turned it 90 degrees, but what it was
and how do you find it, I have no idea. Sorry Mr. C.

You have the touch Marty! I'm going to stop right there...   ;)

I tried the rotating reposting thing myself when I saw the horizontal posting of that pic, it didn't work. I'll admit that I didn't spend too much time on it though.

Well guy, at our age, it takes a little more work to get it upright.....  ::)

Another great place is the Cosmosphere Space Museum in Hutchinson, Kansas.  Apollo 13 is there along with a lot of other cool stuff.  At the time they also had an SR-71 hanging from the ceiling in the main lobby, that's an eyefull.

Dad grew up in Hutch. Didn't know they had a SR there. A couple close friends worked on those.

You can take a virtual tour on their website.  Click on their main page, click on Cosmosphere, click Virtual Tour, click Galleries, click Lobby. This page shows the SR71 in the lobby, although it isn't a very good pic.
