An Adventure to the California Science Center & Shuttle Endeavour

Continuing our fun Memorial Day, Allison and I went to visit the California Science Center to see the Space Shuttle Endeavour. We arrived about three hours before our appointment for the Shuttle, so we decided to explore the rest of the museum

 

The Museum

Since we were super early we killed some time in the museum itself.

Ecosystems

First on our list was the Ecosystems exhibit, we saw a ton of cool fish and reptiles that were on display.

Then we went outside to see the touch tank and touched some super slimey slugs and some spiky starfish.

These are actual shark eggs. In the video at the top you can actually see them move inside their little eggs.

The World of Life

After Ecosystems we went to the World of Life exhibit. We saw video of an actual lung replacement. Allison was a little grossed out but I found it fascinating.

I tried my hand at the Drunk Driving simulator, and it was super hard. Needless to say, I failed and crashed the virtual car.

I had to get out the fisheye lens to get the entire shuttle into one picture, but I did.
