NASA Aerospace Institute - Day 6 (Saturday): Today was spent learning at Epcot! The day started with a behind-the-scene tour of Mission Space, with is a 2.7 g ride that gives the visitor a feeling of what future explorations on Mars might likely feel like. Although this ride had less g's than previous ones we'd been on, it still made me squeal and was "out of this world"! Our day taught us more about various energy sources, utilizing plants in space, fuel cell cars of the future and much more :-).

Today's factoid: NASA is working in conjunction with Epcot to experiment with using airponics (plants grown in the air) for future space missions!
