Nov 2 2010: Waiting Patiently

With the flight of STS-133, Space Shuttle Discovery, delayed until Wednesday, we had some extra time. Why not visit the Astronaut Hall of Fame?

Alan Bean was one of only twelve people to walk on the moon. After his return, he took up art and has painted many beautiful and fantastic scenes. Some represent what happened to him during his time on the moon while others are pure imagination and inspiration.

No trip would be complete without shopping! Some of Florida's rain. In the time it takes to close the car door, you will be soaked.

A fifth team member - our Principal, Mrs. Bessent - is also here in Florida waiting for the launch. Like us, she is not sitting around doing nothing while we wait. Mrs. Bessent made a trip to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Center. The rest of us will go to the Visitor Center either tomorrow (if the launch is delayed again) or the day after the launch.
