Saint Louis Science Center Announces 2018 Exhibition,  Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission

Saint Louis Science Center is one of four museums nationwide to host exhibition

Neil Armstrong Apollo 11 blasted off on July 16, 1969. Neil Armstrong, Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin and Michael Collins were the astronauts on Apollo 11. Four days later (July 20, 1969: One Giant Leap For Mankind), Armstrong and Aldrin landed on the moon. They landed on the moon in the Lunar Module.

在美国东部时间1969年7月20日下午4时17分42秒,阿姆斯特朗将左脚小心翼翼地踏上了月球表面,这是人类第一次踏上月球。阿波罗11号(Apollo 11‎)是美国国家航空航天局的阿波罗计划中的第五次载人任务,是人类第一次登月任务。1969年7月20日,尼尔·阿姆斯特朗与巴兹·奥尔德林成为了首次踏上月球的人类。阿波罗11号的成功实现了约翰·肯尼迪总统在1961年5月25日的演说中声称美国会在1970年以前“把一个宇航员送到月球上并把他安全带回来”的目标。

ST. LOUIS (Feb. 22, 2017) — The Saint Louis Science Center is proud to announce that it is one of four science museums nationwide to host “Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission,” a traveling exhibition from the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. The exhibition will feature the Apollo 11 command module Columbia, marking the first time in 46 years the module has left the museum, as well as 20 artifacts from the historic mission. After the exhibition tour, the artifacts will return to the Smithsonian for a new exhibition, also titled “Destination Moon,” which will open in 2020.

This is one of the most recognizable photos in history of our country. Neil Armstrong, first man on the moon, just about every kid in this country knows this or should know this.

“Destination Moon” will be at the Saint Louis Science Center from April 14 to Sept. 3, 2018. The 49th anniversary of the moon landing is July 20, 2018.

“St. Louis played a vital role in the Space Race, with McDonnell-Douglas serving as a key leader in the development of the Mercury and Apollo mission technology,” said Bert Vescolani, president and CEO. “We are honored to have the opportunity to host this exhibition, which represents an iconic period in our country’s history. We are the only museum in the Midwest to host this exhibition, which is so special for the city of St. Louis. We feel very honored because we know that for many people this will be a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see these artifacts.”

In addition to the Apollo 11 command module Columbia, the only portion of the historic spacecraft to complete the first mission to land a man on the moon and safely return him to Earth, the exhibition will feature:

  • Star Chart: The chart shows the positions of the sun, moon and stars at the time Apollo 11 was scheduled to leave Earth’s orbit and head for the moon.
  • Rucksack #1, Survival Kit: One of two rucksacks filled with equipment to help the crew survive for up to 48 hours in the event of an emergency landing somewhere on Earth. The kit includes three water containers, a radio beacon and spare battery, three pairs of sunglasses, six packages of desalting chemicals, a seawater desalter kit, two survival lights, a machete and two bottles of sunscreen.
  • Aldrin’s Extravehicular Visor: Buzz Aldrin wore this outer helmet while on the surface of the moon. It fit over his clear pressure-bubble helmet.
  • Aldrin’s Extravehicular Gloves: These gloves have an outer, cut-resistant shell of Chromel-R fabric across the hands to prevent fatal air leaks caused by handling sharp objects and gauntlets to protect against solar heating. The blue fingertips were made of silicone rubber to provide more sensitivity for touching.

Vescolani said, “‘Destination Moon’ will help visitors of all ages to appreciate the accomplishment of the Moon Landing and all of the work that went into making it happen. We hope the exhibition inspires our guests to think about what is next in space discovery. Perhaps one of them will play a role in exploring Mars and beyond.”
