The Johnson Space Center was the hub for all flight operations for the US space program, including astronaut training.  This is where history was made.  The JSC has a comprehensive visitor center, detailing the history of the US space program.

One of the most impressive things we learned is the massive efforts it takes to do space flights.  Even with todays technologies, it takes huge manpower and $$$$ to conduct a space program.  We enjoyed our visit and recommend it to others.  Below are some highlight images.
