Apollo 11 Command Module Hatch Window

Laura and Charlie are in from Ohio so we returned to see the Destination Moon Exhibit at the Heinz History Center.  Charlie ( 3 1/2) loves all things SPACE.

Today I captured them from the other side of the hatch, looking though.  Of course it is protected under glass/plexiglass.

Anything hard to find?

Something you’ve had on your list but never received?

My son Mark recently remembered his longed for toy (thirty + years), best gift ever.  You might remember that post of his receiving the Millennium Falcon. It was my top post in 2011,  the most viewed.

Not to confuse Star Wars and Star Trek but how about this Barbie and Ken Star Trek set?  It’s probably gone now but I saw it a couple of weeks ago.

To the Moon and Back

Saturday afternoon we went down to the Heinz History Center to see the Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission  Exhibit with the actual capsule from Apollo 11 and a piece of the moon.  Charlie and Michael had fun trying to use the pincers to collect “moon rocks” and they got to experience what it was like inside the capsule. The amount of interactive parts in the exhibit were much appreciated and enthusiastically enjoyed. There were books you could write your memories in about where you were when the men landed on the moon, fifty years ago.
