Our next field trip was to the NASA Space Center in Houston. Elizabeth was in heaven, this was her dream to come here, as she is planning on being an astronaut when she is older. We spent the entire day here. It was a hot day outside, so we arrived early, so that we could take the tram ride and do the outdoor events before the heat really hit.
The tram ride take you from the visitors center, under the highway, to the actual space center where mission control and all the support units are located. As odd as it seemed, in the middle of all this high tech fly to the moon landscape, is a herd of cattle, or "space cattle" as we dubbed them.

|The local FFA chapter keeps cattle on the NASA grounds. They work with NASA and the cattle doing "special projects" ....or maybe, they are alien cows?????|
