One Giant Leap: North Carolina and the Space Race

Apr. 5, through Jan. 5, 2020

July 20, 2019 will mark the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing.

One Giant Leap: North Carolina and the Space Race will be a 1,500 square foot lobby exhibit that explores North Carolina's role in the space race, containing stories about the people, places, chimps, and things that helped make America's historic leap to the Moon. Visitors can try out the Gemini training module from Morehead Planetarium or test their ability to follow directions at Mission Control during a critical phase in the Apollo 11 mission.
