Kennedy Space Center

Ännu en helt otrolig dag!
Efter en snabb frukost på balkongen i Orlando så checkade vi ut och begav oss mot Kennedy Space Center! Efter cirka 1 timmes körning så var vi framme, jag hade ju självklart redan köpt biljetterna så vi behövde inte köa för att komma in. Vi begav oss direkt till den guidade bussturen som skulle ta oss runt de 3 olika punkterna ute vid K.S.C. När vi satt oss på bussen, så såg vi att den turen skulle ta mellan 2 – 3 timmar men det tog oss snarare 5 timmar… på grund av min nyfikenhet och extas av allt som fanns att se och ta på! Nu har jag tagit på månen och bussen som transporterade Armstrong och gänget. :D

Turen började med ett stopp vid en utsikts plats över de olika uppskjutningsplatserna. Längs med vägen dit går vägen för rymdfärjan när den ska transporteras till uppskjutningen; en bred grus/sand väg . Nästa stopp var Apollo/Saturn V Center. Där såg vi en häftig film över hur Apollo-programmet gick till och månlandningen, svårt att beskriva i detalj en upplevelse, vi fick även uppleva hur det gick till i kontrollrummet när Apollo 11 (första månlandningen) lyfte, med nedräkningen och datorer och kommentarer och skakande rutor under uppskjutningssekunderna.

Vid varje stopp på turen fick man spendera så mycket tid som man själv ville, det gick regelbundet bussar som tog en vidare till nästa stopp, och det fanns även en ny souvenirbutik vid varje stopp, sjukt vad massa häftiga grejer som finns, svårt att inte vilja ha allt (en del blev det)!

Nästa stopp var International Space Station Center, där vi fick se hur det ser ut inne i en rymdstation, och en snabb titt in i hangaren där man går igenom allt som har befunnit sig i eller ska ut i rymden. Efter vår busstur så var vi tillbaka på visitor centrat igen där vi åkte en ny attraktion som illustrerar en riktig uppskjutning med G-krafter och fartkänsla. Vi blev fastspända och sedan vinklades allting uppåt så att man satt som i en raket som ska lyfta, sedan började allting skaka och sen bar det iväg i en mycket detaljerad simulator, där man till och med kände i ansiktet att det gick undan. ”Vi” nådde farter på 17000mph och fick känna hur det känns när bensintanken och hjälpraketerna lossnar och sedan lugnet som är drygt 3 min efter start ute i rymden. Också svårt att beskriva, måste upplevas!

Efter denna tur så begav vi oss in i en fullskalig modell av Discovery/Challenger och efter det käkade vi lite snabb lunch/middag/kvällsmat. Det blev en ostfylld kringla! Gott! (Vi snackar inte svensk kak-kringla alltså; en amerikansk kringla/pretzel liknar mer en fullskalig middag.) Sen tog jag mig en tur till Astronaut Memorial medan Maria tog det lugnt en stund. Efter det begav vi oss till IMAX Theatre där ”vi” (Maria somnade) blev guidade av Tom Hanks i 3D och fick uppleva hur det är att landa och leva på månen.

Sen tog jag mig en tur i raketparken och en sista tur i souvenirbutiken. Och när parken stängde vid 8 så var det dags att ta vår egen Challenger ut på vägen igen. Vi körde ca 1 timme norrut och sover inatt strax utanför Daytona Beach i Port Orange på ett motell som heter La Quinta. Ännu en gång nämnde jag det magiska ordet och fick oss uppgraderade till ett lite större rum! ;)
