When you’re in Houston, visiting the Space Centre will definitely be on the must-do list. It is hard to not be amazed at the wonder of science, technology, and engineering set against a rich history of space exploration.
The Space Centre also holds the largest lunar rock exhibit available for the general public to view, a series of flight simulators, and frequently holds touring exhibits, the most recent being a Mythbusters exhibit based from the television show. Regardless of age, the interactive stands are too inviting to miss!
In summary, one realizes that this very centre is where dreams of space exploration turned into reality, through the pursuit of science and technology, and every piece of work seen at the Space Centre is a piece of history.
