The Right Stuff

astronaut

There is something so beautiful and awe-inspiring about the history of NASA and those brave men and women who have ventured into space. People like Neil Armstrong, John Glenn, Sally Ride, and Buzz Aldrin all became American heroes and symbols of bravery due to their work with NASA and the space program. The NASA Gift Shop in Silicon Valley, located only about 10 minutes from Hotel Zico, allows visitors the opportunity to interact with some of that history up close. Some of the particularly interesting artifacts on display include a lunar glove box to protect moon rocks from contamination, a Mercury Redstone capsule, models of exploration satellites like Pioneer, a SOFIA wind tunnel model, and photo cutouts from the famous Mars Rover. After getting as much NASA history as you can handle, you will have the opportunity to find the perfect pin, patch, or picture to help you remember your visit.
