New Exhibit

New-BackToTheMoon-Title

On display starting June 1st

In 1969, Neil Armstrong took "one small step for man" during the Apollo 11 mission. More than fifty years later, humanity is going back to the Moon.

There have been many changes since the Apollo Program. NASA's Artemis Program will land the first woman and first person of color on the lunar surface. Using what we learn on the Moon will help us take the next giant leap in exploration: Mars.

People have not landed on the Moon since 1972 with the Apollo Program. While we know a lot about our closest neighbor, there is still much to learn.
