UAH campus surroundings...huge campus with lotsa buildings...but I hadn't had time to take more nice photos yet.

10 Aug 2008: The international office gave all international students a free trip to Nasa Space & Rocket Center!!


It was my first time seeing rockets!! Had lotsa fun trying wall climbing, Space Shot and G-Force!

This Space Center is the main attraction in Huntsville...that's why it is called 'Rocket City'!


A great place to learn more about the journey to the space!!
