Don't be alarmed, they weren't robots from other planets sent to conquer Earth. In fact, it's the other way around.
The actual lunar spacesuits with traces of moondust still on them give me the chills. And how they're presented in such a dark, quiet case -- you really do feel like you're looking through to watch astronauts walking on the moon.
I think there's a very good chance that John Glenn was the first astronaut whose name I ever learned. So getting to hear him speak was an exceedingly memorable moment.
Okay, so now on to what I came for in the first place -- the meteorites! Touchable meteorites always get me excited, because those hunks of stone and iron are the oldest things it's possible to touch -- the ancient leftovers of the formation of our solar system.
Between the 11 hours on my first weekend, various visits after work, and coming after-hours to see the Glenn lecture, the National Air and Space Museum now felt like familiar territory.
