Best Field Trip Ever! (Long)

The places where one thing opens onto another -- a door, a harbor, a gate, a border, a mouth -- are inherently interesting. They attract the eye and the attention. They are places of drama, of excitement.

Kennedy Space Center is the gateway between the United States and space.

I visited there last week, as an invited guest of NASA.

It was awesome.
