Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission

Above? The Columbia command module, on display outside the National Air and Space Museum for the first time since 1976

Edited from the museum’s exhibition description: On July 24, 1969, the Apollo 11 mission met President Kennedy’s 1961 challenge of “landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the earth” before the end of the decade. Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission contained artifacts that made the 953,000-mile journey possible.

Buzz Aldrin’s gold-plated extravehicular helmet visor and thermal-insulated gloves with lunar instructions printed on the side.

It’s been years, maybe a decade, since I sat in an OMNIMAX® Theater. That seems like the right interval.
