NASA Langley Open House

We went to the Open House at NASA Langley Research Center today. Erin's sister, Alyssa, works there and told us about it. There was no way I was going to miss that opportunity...

SCIENCE!

Beatrix really enjoyed seeing all of the cool NASA stuff.

At the end of our visit Beatrix and I got to take a tour of the National Transonic Facility. It was absolutely awesome. It is the 'world's largest pressurized cryogenic wind tunnel'. I believe the guide said it would go down to -250° and up to 900 miles per hour. Just amazing.
