We went to KSC a few years ago and had a great time. I didn’t see that photo spot, but I did get my picture taken with the astronaut mascot walking around. Susi June 13, 2012 at 4:46 pm This was actually taken at the Astronaut Hall of Fame a few miles down the road. 🙂 Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell June 13, 2012 at 6:35 pm One looks happier than the other! Susi June 13, 2012 at 10:19 pm Little One doesn’t want to take pictures lately and always makes a face. Middle on the other hand loves the camera!!! Janice June 13, 2012 at 7:53 pm That looks pretty cool! Were you at a museum or something? And why is it red? I thought spacesuits are supposed to be white??? Susi June 13, 2012 at 10:17 pm We were at the Astronaut Hall of Fame close to Kennedy Space Center and some early space suits were orange… I think! 🙂 Sweetheart June 14, 2012 at 12:57 pm The color of the suit has more to do with where its intended to be used than that of age. White reflects sunlight and therefore residual heat and is generally used in orbit or by a planetary body (the Moon). By reflecting the rays it helps to make the suits environmental controls more efficient. Conversely the red color of some pressure suits isn’t red at all, its actually “International Orange”. This color doesn’t exist in nature and tends to stand out, especially in water or against wooded areas. So, if you’re flying a dangerous mission and have to bail out, hopefully you’d be wearing International Orange! 🙂 Susi June 15, 2012 at 10:28 pm Thank you for clarifying that for us!!! Much appreciated. 🙂 Kate F. (@katefineske) June 14, 2012 at 7:54 am What an ADORABLE Photo! Susi June 15, 2012 at 12:56 pm Thanks, Kate. Rebecca June 15, 2012 at 7:23 pm Cute photo!!!
