James - Moonshot, Moonshot
I really can't remember the first time I went to the Science Museum, but I was probably about 9 - 10 (ie 1970ish) .... but every time I visit there is always something new to see, and something that I have already seen to re-discover.

Other trips to London have been to see James, well this is Buzz Aldrin's suit.  James played Aldrin in the film Moonshot, so this is as close as I got this year.

The straw dress is so nice and sunny! I bet it would be scratchy as all getout if someone actually touched it.

I don't think I've ever been to the Science Museum - every time I've suggested it the girls have refused. But now that they no longer need to come with us I might actually get there!

It's one of those museums that has quite a few different displays ... including an area that has more recents exhibits ... which bring back a few memories!
