Space city

By: Glenn Goodhall on 16th Oct 2013

We arrived in Houston ready to explore the famous space centre and all it had to offer. The space centre was great we watched a few presentations one was about life in a space shuttle. One of the most interesting facts was that an astronauts heart actually shrinks in space and also the your muscle deteriorate in space because they aren't being used.

We watched another presentation all about exploring Mars, and how the rovers that explore Mars have evolved. I found this talk quite fascinating and didn't realise that Mars is actually a cold planet and that the reason it is red is because it's covered in iron oxide.

After another hectic day we stayed with another couch surfer Kevin. Kevin was very hospitable and showed us around his house, he had a pool table and a ping pong table which was great fun. We managed to find a stream to watch the England game which was good this was the first bit of football that we have seen since we have been here.

Kevin wanted to get more involved in football so we made him choose a team, he has been to London before so I said pick a London team. We came down to the big free Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal and unfortunately he picked Arsenal because they play in red.

Overall really enjoyed my time in Houston up next a short stay in San Antonio the Austin
