NASA to Celebrate First Apollo Moon Landing at Armstrong Air & Space Museum
CLEVELAND -- In celebration of the first lunar landing, NASA's Glenn Research Center is bringing the excitement of NASA's aeronautics and space program to the Armstrong Air & Space Museum in Wapakoneta, Ohio with NASA's Journey to Tomorrow traveling exhibit.

Journey to Tomorrow, housed in a 53-foot-long trailer, will be on display Sunday and Monday, July 19-20, and is packed with hands-on activities and digital learning stations that will give visitors an interactive understanding of our nation's space program.

Inside the exhibit are eight computer kiosks that provide a variety of NASA-developed programming, including "Celebrating 100 Years of Flight," highlighting NASA's contributions to the first 100 years of powered flight; "Brain Bites," which answers common questions about air and space travel; and a lunar landing simulator.

Additional workstations include glovebox activities, a planetary gravity demonstrator and a solar system scale where visitors discover how much they would weigh on each of the planets and the moon.

To round out the NASA experience, everyone can see a real moon rock, watch the Ares I-X launch animation video, walk through the captivating full-size inflatable model of the Orion crew exploration vehicle, observe a replica of NASA's space shuttle and take home a free digital photograph from the "Picture Yourself in Space" photo booth.
