It was a great experience and the timing could not have been better. The bus from Orlando was right on rime and our guide was excellent. We got there and he introduced us to all th3 exhibits and left us off at the Atlantis. His advice to me was the shuttle then dine with 5he astronaut (Charlie Walker) and then take the bus tour. After that, there was time to see the other exhibits as I walked towards the meeting point. The ride back was very comfortable and the cool of the air conditioning was very welcome. It was a great experience.

We took our 9 year old Grandson Charlie to meet an Astronaut and what an experience for him and for us. The venue, welcome, service, staff and the lunch was excellent and of the highest standard. A special thanks goes to former Astronaut Don Thomas for spending time with Charlie, answering his questions, signing his photo and a special thanks for his words of encouragement on how to become a future Astronaut or Engineer on the Mars programme .... Watch this space .... A fantastic day out at the Kennedy Space Centre and Lunch with an Astronaut.
