Day 3- Independence Day/Kennedy Space Centre
Independence Day! Today we visited the Kennedy Space Centre. There was so much to do including: a banquet lunch with an astronaut; shuttle launch experience; twin 3D IMAX space films and exhibits featuring rockets and shuttles that have carried out missions in Space. We also visited the Launch Pads and experienced the distance the sound alone would kill someone on a launch. The day was thrilling, inspirational and totally exhausting, so students chose to miss the fireworks display to mark Independence Day and have a pool party back at the hotel instead.
