the other Air and Space Museum

So out by Dulles Airport is the other Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. I bet you didn't know there were two, did you? The Air and Space Museum on the Mall is one of my favorites, so I had high hopes for the Stephen Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum when we visited a few weeks ago with my in-laws. It did not disappoint!

Space Shuttle Enterprise

rocket boosters!
the quarantine trailer that the first moon walking astronaut's, including Mr. Neil Armstrong, lived in when they returned to Earth... to ward off any "moon germs"
(that's a technical NASA term!)

SR-17 Blackbird
the place also had some super cool architecture
