Johnson Space Center

We took the kids to Space Center Houston this week and toured a few areas at Johnson Space Center, my dad’s old stomping grounds. It’s been nearly twenty years since I visited. Oddly, everything felt familiar and new at the same time. As a kid I didn’t truly realize the magnitude of innovation that was pouring out of there, right around the corner from our home. JSC was just the place dad went to work everyday and helped send shuttles into space. NBD. I’ve spent the week thinking of so many questions I would ask him now and stories I would have looked forward to hearing.
