'Houston, The Eagle Has Landed ... '

Decompressing from my Houston trip involved a short run, a long nap ... and processing photos I took during my one free day (where I drove down to the Johnson Space Center) ... unfortunately, I did not have a chance to do much sightseeing with the packed schedule of meetings that I had to attending during the day and evenings. :P

Nonetheless, a big thank-you to those of you who offered suggestions for 'things to do in Houston' - if things go well, I should be back in TX in a few months and will hopefully have more time to act on some of your recommendations. :)

As a astrophysics and space geek, I was thrilled to get a chance to visit the Johnson Space Center and see some of NASA/aerospace memorobilia on display, starting with the inside cockpit of Space Shuttle Endeavor.
