2008 HDT Rally - Hutchinson Kansas

Cosmosphere


One of the surprising things we did is visit the Cosmosphere, a museum of America', and Russia's space efforts. Who would have expected a Space Museum in Kansas?  Well two of our  astronauts came from Kansas.

We took in the Hubble presentation in the Planetarium will an incredible array of photos taken from Hubble.

There was an extensive exhibit on the German rocket development for WW II which was the basis of United States, and Russian, space development.

These photos do not do justice to the amount of exhibits in the Museum.  Plan several hours if you go.
