Goddard Space Flight Center - 8/13/2022

This afternoon Sarah and I went to the visitor center at Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland northeast of Washington.

Goddard Space Flight Center

Named in recognition of American rocket propulsion pioneer Robert H. Goddard, it was established in 1959 as NASA's first space flight center.

The center had many displays and exhibits showing off the programs they had accomplished.  These include historical, current and future projects.  There was a theater showing continuous films highlighting the accomplishments of the earth and space exploration.

Outside the visitor center there was an area with more displays including examples of the space centers rocketry projects.

Sarah and I spent about an hour and a half exploring the visitor center and made a brief shopping visit in the gift shop.  We enjoyed our relaxing and educational visit at Goddard.
