Dropped the boy off at Space Camp this afternoon and got to spend some time with the Saturn V, Apollo Command Module Casper (Apollo 16) and the F-1 engine at the US Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville. Turns out the F-1 was intended to be used, but was damaged in a fire and never went back into circulation. The Saturn was the dynamic test vehicle and was never intendedfor flight.

The boy is stoked to be there. One of his buddies is there as well, so they are both more comfortable with things.
