Hey, how have y'all been doing this week?

If you are planning travelling to Chicago (Illinois State), let me recommend you a must-visit permanent exhibition of space travel inside the museum of science and industry Chicago.

The official name of this space exhibition is "The Henry Crown Space Center Exhibition". This was one of my most favourite exhibitions I visited with my brother.


There we saw many interesting artifacts and scale modules of space stuffs but the outstanding subjects of this exhibitions that we enjoyed:

NASA capsule Apollo 8 and its command module

We also tried the remote control to a Mars Rovers and saw many small modules of the rockets but we forgot to take photos of them. These above photos were not the good photos as I expected. Whatever, we really enjoyed this visit.
