If it wasn’t for the fact that my maths skills are beyond horrendous, I would most definitely have gone into physics instead of art & fashion. I would have loved to have studied cosmology, but I knew I’d never be able to pass the entrance exam when I struggle with even basic mathematics! I can easily grasp the ideas & principles, but when it comes to the formulas I’m totally lost! I’m sure most of you are aware by now of my fascination with the cosmos, so it’ll come as no surprise that Kennedy Space Center was another day I seriously enjoyed. It was a really nice change from all the Disney parks we’d done the week before too.

This was one of the last places we visited & it was the only time I actually remembered to take some outfit photos! Sorry about that! How stunning is the ‘Rocket Garden’ though? Things like this always really overwhelm me, it’s so awe-inspiring standing at the foot of these ginormous machines & seeing just how massive & what a feat of technical engineering excellence they really are.

There were so many amazing pieces on display too, I especially enjoyed the little Apollo 14 exhibit they had. There were chunks of moon rock, astronauts diaries, prototype spacesuits & even Alan Shepard’s actual space suit from the mission, still covered in a silvery layer of moon dust! I got pretty excited about that one, I know it’s just dust, but it came from the moon, how amazing is that?! They also had the actual Apollo 14 capsule there, which I loved! The Hubble exhibit was another favourite, huge back-lit images from the telescope covered the walls & it was really quite magical to see them at such a large scale & felt almost as if you were amongst it all.

Like the big kid that I am, I had so much fun playing around with all the interactive exhibits they had too! I got to touch a real (3.7 billion year old!) piece of moon rock, rode the space shuttle launch simulator (not as good as the one at Epcot, sorry NASA!), sat in a mockup Apollo capsule, experienced what a shuttle launch was like from the control room & got to look around a replica cockpit!

    The space section in the Science Museum London is my favourite part of a museum EVER! so this literally looks like my dream place. I could get lost here for hours! Great pictures.

    wow the photos of you against the hubble photos are UNREAL steph!! makes for such amazing outfit photos! and the first photo is like the ultimate postcard! :) i’m with you on the math, i actually studied science and add math for three years and the thought of going to add maths classes always stressed me out because I couldn’t never do the homework properly.. haha. so, art and design it is i guess ;)

      Aw, thankyou! It really makes me want to wallpaper my room in something similar, it looks so beautiful at such a large scale!
      I would love to blame my lack of math skills on the awful teachers we had, but I honestly think it’s more one of those things you’re born with, the way your brain’s wired & that people tend to be either artistically creative or mathematically creative. I’m obviously the former, so yeah, art & design all the way! ;)

    Seeing this post makes me wish I was back there, the Kennedy Space Centre is one of my favourite places ever! And yes I definitely wish I was good at physics so I could do astrophysics! Your dress is beautiful, it suits you so well :) Love your blog! x

    Oh that last photo is magical! The universe is such a wonderful subject; simply imagining the sheer size of space is just awe-inspiring.

      I totally agree, it literally blows my mind thinking about it & I must spend so many nights just lying awake contemplating all the mysteries of the universe! It’s just so fascinating & I also think it’s simply amazing that we know so much about it, though of course there is still much more to learn.

    This looks amazing, I am always amazed when you think of what humans can do!

    Oh wow, I am so jealous! I’m totally fascinated by space!

    You should visit the Science Museum in Kensington if you haven’t already – they have some amazing pieces of space history in there!

      I love the Science Museum too! I’ve been a few times, but quite a while ago now, I think I’m definitely due another visit soon! :)

    Wow…this is amazing. And like several said before, that last picture is stupendous. Oh my goodness. :)
    Hahah, I know a few people who are majoring in Physics and I am completely astounded by them. I don’t know how they can process all that math and information.
