You're going where?!?!?!

Now *this* is the sort of stuff that is another reason I moved to Houston.  Tomorrow, our IT department (including my manager who is in from Kennedy Space Center) will be taking a tour of the facility where they are working on what is called the "Commercial Crew Development" program (CCDev for short).  This will include a visit to the actual mock-up vehicle and being able to sit inside of it.  There is also the possibility that we'll be able to visit the Neutral Buoyancy Lab next door where the astronauts train in a giant water tank on how to work in space.

As a bonus, I got permission to take photographs!!  Whee!!  Now THIS is going to be fun!!!

Hee, I remember going to Vandeberg, going through the 'no photography past here' and being told, 'take pictures of whatever you want. 'Okay, about 50' from that is okay. Oop, not under that cowl, that's what the Brazilians don't have figured out yet...'
