mock-up at the Johnson Space Center. The Senator was in Houston to meet with area aerospace businesses. Cruz also took his daughters to the JSC where JSC Director (and former astronaut) Ellen Ochoa showed them around.
I don’t know if cool field trips make up for having Ted Cruz for your father though.
Cruz is the chairman of the Senate Subcommittee on Space, Science, and Competitiveness so it’s a good thing he’s such a firm believer in science.
