As the briefing ended, the doors opened, and the audience slowly made its way out of the viewing area, Capt. Dahlke and 1 st Lt Stoddard heard Cadet Davis exclaim, "Wow" as she looked up and saw the massive Saturn V that took six Apollo missions to the moon and back.

After the briefing, CAP Capt. Gary Dahlke conducted a roundtable discussion answering questions about the Space Shuttle program and clarifying the previous day's activities. After lunch, the cadets visited the Space X launch pad and hangar, though they were not able to see the Falcon 9 launch vehicle because it was at another location.
The highlight of the day came when the cadets visited the Vertical Integration Facility (VIF) at Complex 41, viewing the Atlas from the bottom up and the top down. This gave a new meaning to the word "enormous" as the rocket stood at its full height. After dinner, Capt. Dahlke presented a briefing on NASA's Commercial Crew Development program that is designed to allow private companies to transport astronauts to the International Space Station.
Capt. Dahlke wrapped up the evening by explaining the inner workings of a rocket in preparation for Friday's launch. The evening ended with a talk about Capt. Dahlke's Seven Wonders of the Universe. Tomorrow will be viewing space history.
As an alternative to the "real thing," the cadets viewed a demonstration launch of a high-power model rocket assembled and run by CAP Capt. Gary Dahlke.
Since KSC had not scheduled any rocket launches during the activity, Capt. Gary Dahlke gave the cadets a demonstration launch of a high-power model rocket he had assembled and run.
