USS Hornet, Alameda California

We visited USS Hornet today.  This was the splashdown recovery ship for the Apollo 11 & 12 missions. I love when another one of our interests pops up in an unlikely place.  The kids were not expecting to discover part of the space programme on an old navy ship.   This was the first ship where a launch was made that led to the first direct attack against Japan in WWII.
