Chabot visit

2006-08-21 14:27:58.78387+00 by Dan Lyke 0 comments

Went across the bay and up the hill to Chabot Space and Science Center. Wandered through the exhibits, had fun, although had the usual conundrums of such places, sometimes I want more stuff targeted towards the curious adult, and the information density seemed a little low, but it still took quite a bit of the day by the time we wandered out to the patio on the top level and saw the telescopes.

If you're a fan of late 1800s to early 1900s technology the way I am, there's some beautiful machinery there. We'll have to go back sometime to look through 'em, but they're gorgeous. Free looking through them, weather permitting, every Friday and Saturday nights, and we're definitely going to have to go back over to check 'em out. And soon.

Kudos and accolades to MarkV for his efforts in the restoration and setting up of those gorgeous devices.
