This is the last of the Space Center Houston images for now. During the camp, we sleep amongst the exhibits and this year we were assigned space on the floor of the Spaceship Gallery which is home to a bunch of hardware including this mock-up of the Skylab interior.
For the benefit of the youngsters reading this, Skylab was the first US space station. It launched on a Saturn V rocket on May 14th, 1973 and was occupied by various crews for a total of 171 days. It deorbited in 1979 with most of it burning up or landing in the Indian Ocean and the Western Australian outback.
