I went to Houston, Texas to see a friend.
I told my friend that I was interested in astronauts. She said
that there was good place to visit where I could learn all about
astronauts and the U.S. space program. So, we decided to
visit Space Center Houston.
In the main exhibition area, there are hands-on exhibits where
you can try on space helmets and see demonstrations about
life in space.
There are also a number of movies. One movie is about the
history of the space program. My favorite movie was an
IMAX film about astronauts and cosmonauts working in the
Russian Mir space station.
