Apollo 11 CM “Columbia”

This weekend, I chilled in Washington DC… Saw Jason and Chris, went to the Smithsonian, Eighteenth Street Lounge, mopped, etc.. good, relaxing weekend. You might also note that I’m very into space and NASA and the Apollo program. If you look closely at the photo, you’ll notice I’m holding a Fisher AG-7 Space Pen, the pen that the Apollo astronauts used in spaceflight (for example, in the actual capsule in back of me, in space!). The pen is still used on all spaceflights today, and is in orbit in the ISS right now. And finally, for halloween ’04, I actuanlly dressed up as a Apollo 11 Mission Controller, complete with historically accurate ID badge.
