Today’s Photo: Entrance to the Moon

Have you ever wanted to walk on the Moon or maybe, just feel like you are walking on the Moon?  When I was growing up, I kept the dream of being an astronaut alive much longer than my peers.  I was always fascinated by stars, planets, moons, galaxies, you name it.  If it was in space, I wanted to know about it.  So, as part of that, I imagined what it would have been like to be Neal Armstrong or Buzz Aldrin and take the first steps on the Moon.

While at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center, I was able to get my first taste of walking on the Moon.  Now, I missed out on the low gravity, but that did not take away from the experience.  I don’t remember if this exhibit had a specific name, but it was cool.  You walked into a hallway which was lit with small blue colored lights.  Then in the walk, there were these glass bowls.  I did not know what it was until my wife told me to stick my head into one.  Now, that in itself should have given my pause.

I stuck my head in this bowl and looked around.  It was dark.  I could barely see anything and then, I saw what looked like a Moonscape.  It was a pretty cool experience.  Imagine putting you head in a small trashcan and trying to see.  To that, you add the echoing of your own voice when you try to talk.  It makes for a very eerie feel.

    I love the light and color. You get the feeling that something ominous is behind the doors.

  3. Now that you mention it, this hallway reminded me of something out of Aliens. Thanks for the feedback.
