Day 169 – The Kennedy Space Center Spoon

On June 18, 1983, Sally Ride became the first American woman in space as a crew member aboard the Space Shuttle Challenger on a mission which lasted 6 days, 2 hours, 23 minutes, 59 seconds.

Unlike the Kennedy Space Center Shovel, this souvenir of KSC is actually shaped like a spoon and was probably made around the time of Ride’s Challenger mission. The spoon is much, much smaller than the actual space shuttle. Science!


Day 160 – The Vizcaya Spoon

It bears the name “Vizcaya” and has the likeness of a ship at the top, but where this spoon is actually from, I have no idea! 

It could be Villa Vizcaya in Miami, Florida, or it could refer to Biscay, in Spain (Vizcaya in Spanish). Anyone know?
