Visit to the MSI part 1

Our friend Chip was in town last week. Tom and I took him to the Museum of Science and Industry.
They have a captured German U-Boat as part of their collection. This thing to the right is from the lead-in to that exhibit. The dude on the left looks very pouty about having his ship sunk.

Further on, you can see the boarding party that took the sub. My cane
was an essential part of this mission.

It's a really big gun.

The Aurora 7 Mercury capsule (Scott Carpenter's ship).  Damn those things were tiny.  Also, they had lots of switches.

We haven't been since the kid was pretty small. Looks like it's about time to go again.

I get the claustrophobic willies just looking at that capsule. Ugh!
