A Special Anniversary (a wee bit OOC)

Being a child of the space race era, I have a special spot in my heart for NASA. I have explored the Kennedy Space Center on a number of occasions, and truly enjoy historical as well as current books, programming, and other information about NASA and her adventures in science.

And for those of us who enjoy Steampunk and Victorian era themes, here is a comparison of the Verne Moon Gun and the Apollo series rocket/capsule just for fun.
