Outta This World!

We had the chance to go on a field trip as a family, sponsored by the L.I.F.T program our school takes part in, and I think it is just fantastic. I just have never heard of it! Do other schools offer this program?

The bus drove 4 buses filled with families and children to the Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C., and here are a few pictures from our voyage:

my son posing in front of the first space shuttle, the "Enterprise" Why did they name it the Enterprise? Surprisingly enough, our tour guide informed us that The ship was to be named with a "C", like Columbia, etc, but the folks over at the show Star Trek called NASA and insisted that the first space ship to go in to space should be called the Enterprise, NASA agreed and they had the name changed

These are photos of a ship that was actually used in the movie "Close Encounters", how cool is that?!
