The American Bald Eagle became the Country’s Official Bird in 1789 when George Washington became the Nation’s First President. 150 years later, the American Bald Eagle was protected under the National Emblem Act of 1940, when President John F. Kennedy wrote :

“The Founding Fathers made an appropriate choice when they selected the Bald Eagle as the Emblem of the Nation. The Fierce Beauty & Proud Independence of this great Bird aptly symbolizes the Strength & Freedom of America”

Here below is my Kennedy Space Centre STS (Space Transportation System) & Crawler-Transporter Souvenir Magnet :

And I’m really happy to have found this following one cos I’ve been eyeing it since my Sister bought one for Mom some years ago during her visit to the Kennedy Space Centre – Mom loves its Space Shuttle :

The Space Shuttle Lift-Off - Kennedy Space Cente Souvenir Magnet

Well, actually my Sister bought 2 of different designs & I chose the following “Moon Landing” one instead :

Well, I’m fasinated with the above Astronaut Neil Armstrong with the US Flag & the Apollo Lunar Lander on the Moon Landing on 20 July 1969 - as he said “That’s one Small step for a Man, but a Giant leap for Mankind”!!

Notice the vertical line across the word “SPACE” on the above Magnet!?!? That’s actually a crack cos I accidently broke it into 2 pieces few years ago then pasted it back :( (( But I never think of buying another from The Gift Shop here to replace it as it’s a very treasured original piece from my Sister :) ))

When things are not able to be done by robotics that need to be repaired, removed or added in Space, Astronauts have to conduct Spacewalks to take care of the problems – such is a specialised “Spacewalking” activity that requires a great deal of training, equipment & technology to enable Astronauts’ survival without suffering from a complete lack of air & pressure.

Here’s a link to “How Spacewalks Work” – http://science.howstuffworks.com/spacewalk.htm/printable :

Haha, wish Dear & I have got more time to shop in The Gift Shop here at the US Astronaut Hall of Fame in Titusville, Florida USA - If not for the only 1 hour or so that we’re given by the Gray Line Tour Bus driver!!

In fact Dear & I rush through our shopping & arrive hastingly (but punctually) at our Tour Bus only to find out that we’ve still got to wait some 15 mins for a few other Tour mates who’ve yet to return!!

Anyway, I’m most glad that I manage to get more American additions to my World Souvenir Magnets Collection right now heheh :) ))
