One Giant Leap: A Moon Odyssey

Want to get behind the controls of the original space roadster (a Mercury space capsule), see just how much rocket it took to put three men on the Moon, and try your hand at landing there just as it was done the first time? You must be at least this tall to go on this ride…

And what a ride it was! Neil Armstrong admitted to taking a tiny step as a man, but acknowledged that for humankind together, it was a huge advance.

We didn’t just go to the Moon, we brought some of it back to Earth – Chabot has a piece of it! – a moon rock from the Apollo 15 Mission, 3.3 billion years old and still looking like it did when it was born.
