Visiting NASA

Anuenue went to visit the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. There is a small visitor center with movies, displays, and a gift shop. This model of the Hubbard telescope being deployed to a space shuttle is almost the right size for Anuenue!

She took a stroll around the rocket garden. The giant one in the middle of the garden is a Delta launch vehicle.

There are several sounding rockets, including these Argo D-4 Javelin and Tomahawk rockets.

This cute little rocket is an Iris rocket from the 1950s, the only known example still in existence. Some of the campus is also visible behind the rocket, but photos are not allowed of the buildings when outside the visitors center area.
