The milestone events on this journey are eloquently presented in stunning photographs in this exhibit, adapted from an original created by France’s space agency, the Centre national d’études spatiales.

- Lunar Sample – This is a lunar sample that our Museum has secured to be on display from the Goddard Visitor Center at the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX. This sample will be couriered from Texas to the Museum by a Museum staff member who must accompany it at all times during the trip, even as a carry-on!
