A few favorite photos from Washington DC today
Here are a few of my favorite photos I snapped today in Washington D.C. with Alexander. I added all of these to my NECC 2009 Flickr Set.
This is the first time I’ve seen a Tomahawk cruise missile up close.
We were able to not only see but also TOUCH several enormous meteorites today at the Smithsonian Natural History museum, including this one from Arizona:
The exhibit on the Mishin diaries and the light they shed on the Soviet moon landing plans was very interesting to me
This was the “designed but never used” Soviet cosmonaut moon suit:
The Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) exhibit was definitely the highlight of the day for me.
I incorrectly called these “unarmed aerial vehicles” near the end of the video sequence I recorded at the exhibit today. These are definitely NOT “unarmed.”

Did you happen to catch the “Use Your Cellphone To Take a Tour” signs they have up in front of some the exhibits? Very cool way to engage the students and applicable to the classroom of the 21st Century learner. Cool stuff there.
We did see those cell phone tour signs, and used a couple too! Very cool!
