Kennedy Space Center

Just back from visiting the Kennedy Space Center with my son, August.  It was really an amazing place. I'm simultaneously reading Turing's Cathedral, which nicely complements the zeitgeist of the Werner Von Braun rocket era. August pitched a fit within five minutes of our arrival, and we had to leave. Nevertheless, my brief exposure to the scope of the Mercury and Gemini rockets was really inspirational.  For those considering a visit, I encourage you to avoid staying in Cape Canaveral or Cocoa Beach.  Unless you want to buy a gun, patronize a strip bar, or stop in for a massage you could probably safely avoid this part of Florida.
