Map of Space-Related National Historic Landmarks

Share

Continuing from yesterday's introduction, here are the space and/or science-related National Historic Landmarks in the United States of America. 

Space Landmarks

Pretty spread out! Click the map or this link to the clickable and zoomable Google Map on the Pillownaut domain to navigate around.

I've been to 12 already, and have 22 to go. Sadly, none of us may ever reach the total of #35 since one, the Old Naval Observatory in Washington DC, is no longer open to the public.  But that's the only one!

Also note, this is the 5th in a series of space maps, and the rest can be found at the same domain.  The master maps page lists other similar tools for space agencies, space museums, astronaut birth places, Apollo Moon Trees, scaled solar system hikes and all NASA spacecrafts on display.
