Rockets (1)

Having been berated by a contributor for not taking three small children on an all-night journey to sit around in a car for a few hours, for a few minutes excitement that the smallest one wouldn't understand, we (partly) redeemed ourselves today with a trip to the Kennedy Space Centre and a turn on the Shuttle simulator. The three boys went on the five minute 3g+ trip to the edge of space.

Expertly done, I think I was more scared than the boys, at least according to Mrs N who was able to watch the proceedings through close circuit TV.

Mrs N learned to drive in the US, so she has done most of the miles on the wrong side of the road, but I have been allowed to make a few trips, as she grips the edge of the seat and the hand grips ever tighter, muttering increasingly loud expletives (at me, rather than other drivers) until the Margaritas (hers) take effect.
