NASA… One of the largest and busiest space center situated in United States of America.
Hello I am Atharva Nagthane from class VIII B and I am also one of the fortunate students to get a chance to visit NASA and explore many more of USA. Our schedule of the NASA Tour was of 12 days and 11 nights where we covered a large part of East coast and West cost of USA. We travelled around five major cities- New York, Orlando,Las Vegas,Los Angeles and San Francisco. We also experienced…the beauty of Grand Canyon. We also enjoyed at Disney world,Orlando ,Universal studios,Los Angeles ,Famous celebrity’s residential area-Beverly hills in Los Angeles , Hollywood walk of Fame,Golden Gate Bridge,San Francisco.But the most auspicious moment was when we met astronauts John Blaha and Sam Durrance. The best part was when we had a face to face interaction with astronaut Sam Durrance where he shared his experience when he went up in space two times. After we completed the Astronaut Training Experience “ATX” course, we got a certificate signed by Mr.Sam Durrance and an autographed photograph of Sam Durrance. Astronaut John Blaha travelled up into space 8 times to launch satellites and Astronaut Sam Durrance travelled up in space 2 times to launch satellites.I appreciate and thank my parents and the school for taking efforts to help my dream come true.I would also encourage other students to experience this once in a lifetime opportunity.
