Eva is off today, which gave me a chance to get update the Have Science Will Travel Map. While Eva has done a wonderful job highlighting the writing of others about science-y destinations, I have done a miserable job of adding the destinations she has been writing about here at The Finch & Pea. Let’s blame it on the end of the school year chaos and my kids, like usual.
One of the biggest treats for me was getting to add the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan as a location for Eva’s “Dark Side of the Moon” post. The Baikonur Cosmodrome was the launch site for Luna 3 in 1959, which was the first probe to actually take images of the far side of the moon (ie, never visible from earth due to tidal locking).
