This weekend I went all NASA nerd and attended the party on-site to celebrate the Shuttle. In case you aren't aware, the current administration decided to cut funding to the shuttle program and the last shuttle returned to Earth on July 21, 2011. Anywho, in celebration of all that the USA accomplished with the shuttle, NASA had a huge party/ ceremony/ concert this past weekend. There was tons of yummy food and bouncy castles for the kiddos. They were also running tours of building 9 (where all the mock-ups are housed), which was amazing because building 9 is air conditioned and Saturday was the hottest day of the summer thus far (record-matching 109F). After the sun went down, there were lots of fancy-pants NASA speeches from astronauts and other important peeps. They followed up the whole shindig with a concert by the lead singer of Five for Fighting, very cool!
