A Day in Space

After spending the past three days at Disney World, we switched hotels and moved to Universal Cabana Bay in preparation for our visit to Universal Studios. After checking in, we visited the NASA Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. It was a really long drive from the hotel, butย being able to visit a NASA Center was a big deal so we gave it a go.

Since we had to check in first, we arrived at the space center around 2 pm which was a little late already, hence we were only able to see a small portion of the center. We were greeted by the large logo of NASA at the entrance, and we also saw a rocket garden which showcased the different rocket ships that were used by NASA.

We mainly stayed at the Atlantis exhibit. Atlantis was one of the first space shuttles to be launched by NASA into space and we were able to see the actual Atlantis inside.

Nonetheless, we still had a great time and I’m glad that we were able to see a glimpse of outerspace just for a day.

Guardians of the Galaxy: The Review

1/10 of my Marvel Movie Challenge. If the “Avengers” are earth’s mightiest heroes, outer space has its own. They are the Guardians ofย  the Galaxy, and the Marvel-produced film was released last July. To be honest, when I watched the trailer for the first time, I was like “Who are these creatures? Are they some kind of mediocre Avengers wannabees? And why are they using 80’s songs?” But when I found out that the movie was a huge hit, curiosity (and Chris Pratt) made me watch the film.
