James looks like he was kidnapped
id: 43971
Topaz is really excited
id: 43972
Hey it's that place I want to go to!

I still have never been to the Astronaut Hall of Fame.. and that didn't change this year! Someday..

This stupid bridge wants to make me wait just a little bit longer
id: 43975
The VAB!!
id: 43976
I like this Commercial Crew banner
id: 43977
Great shot of the ISS, though I don't think it actually flies all crooked like that
id: 43978
Topaz is dual wielding both his personal camera and my camera

NASA: where even the drainage ditches are over-engineered. Those are water baffles!
id: 43980
NASA!
id: 43981
I am so ready for this day.
id: 43982
I made Topaz sit in all the capsules
id: 43983
I really hope this guy has some sort of cooling system in there
id: 43984
That fake Orion capsule is still sitting around
id: 43985
It was funny watching Topaz slowly grasp the scale of the mockup shuttle stack. Without depth perception he had to walk right up to it.

"This SRB is gigantic!"

Looking up at the bottom of the external tank
id: 43988
Well hello there
id: 43989
It's been too long since I visited my old friend Atlantis
id: 43990
Topaz was suitably impressed
id: 43991
I can never have enough photos of me standing in front of spacecraft
id: 43992
She's beautiful!
id: 43993
I also can never have enough photos of spacecraft in general
id: 43994
A closer shot of the RCS system
id: 43995
The wide angle lens I borrowed this year really came in handy
id: 43996
She's got a big nose but she wears it well
id: 43997
This is where the front nose gear comes out
id: 43998
Atlantis is displayed in the on-orbit configuration. Payload bay doors open, RMS extended, the works
id: 43999
This guy worked on the shuttle for decades! It's always great to pick the brains of the experts NASA has on hand
id: 44000
The Space Shuttle Main Engine is one of the most efficient engines ever created
id: 44001
Baby got back?
id: 44002
Topaz finds the life of a shuttle commander so dull
id: 44003
I really can't get enough of how gorgeous this vehicle is
id: 44004
Topaz too
id: 44005
Engines!
id: 44006
Who wants a thermal protection system rub?
id: 44007
Topaz had fun spinning this tire from the last ever shuttle flight. It was the nose gear for STS-135
id: 44008
Astronaut Jerry Ross! He's flown on seven shuttle missions and performed nine spacewalks!
id: 44009
And now we're best friends
id: 44010
Also Topaz

Suz! What are you doing here??
