Apollo 14 – Back From The Moon


Command Module for Apollo 14 returned from the moon and is now on exhibit at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. You need to take the bus you to the Saturn 5 display, well worth the trip. Commander Alan Shepard, Command Module Pilot Stuart Roosa, and Lunar Module Pilot Edgar Mitchell were the crew for the mission. Alan Shepard actually hit a couple of golf balls with a cobbled together six iron. I assume the balls are still on the moon.

Almost Full

I spent last Saturday morning at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, I spent most of my time out at the Saturn Five/Apollo building. I immersed myself in all the artifacts from the 5 trips that landed on the moon. In the evening I was presented with this view of the moon. All 5 missions landed somewhere on this side of the moon. Apollo 11 landed in the on the dark patch about one third of the way down from the top of the moon
