Hey, fellow Space Tweeps! Is everyone having fun getting ready for the upcoming Tweetups in FL, ALand CA? I’ll be so happy to meet more of you all at the Jet Propulsion Lab in June, and at the final launch… whenever that turns out to be.
In the meantime, I wanted to share my space maps with any road-trippers out there. If you’re anything like me, the first hint of sunshine means I go seeking space agency branches, space museums, Apollo moon trees, space novelties and themed restaurants… well, pretty much anything I can find!
Click here to see this map of all world space agencies, along with a listing of all 220+ branches across all the continents! Except that one overrun by penguins 😉
My space maps have been developing over the past year as I added more sites to each; in addition to all the official government programs, I have also documented checklists of space crafts from the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, Skylab and Shuttle Programs – including the intended homes of Atlantis, Endeavour and Discovery.
Another set of markers that might be helpful to travelers this summer is the map of Space Museums all over the world! Some have observatories or planetariums connected to them, so I hope to map all the additional planetariums next. This set of lists also includes Inns, Restaurants and other space novelties… plus a few Star Trek and Firely easter eggs for good measure.
Don’t be shy about contacting me in the comments section here, or on my Pillow Astronaut blog if you know of other sites I should add!
