Celebrating the 40th anniversary of mankind’s first steps on the moon.

On July 16, 2009, astronauts Buzz Aldrin (Apollo 11) Charlie Duke (Apollo 16) Al Worden (Apollo 15) Edgar Mitchell (Apollo 14) and Walt Cunningham (Apollo 7) will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex and mark the opening of a new exhibit at the Apollo/Saturn V Center.

Rarely seen publicly before, the Apollo artifacts in the new exhibit include a rare collection of space suits and other gear used by the Apollo moonwalkers to explore the lunar surface during space walks, featuring Apollo 14 Commander Alan Shepard’s space suit.

Hi Tim
Not sure if you remember us. It's Martin & Lyndsie here from Mid-Florida Home Management. Just a note to say we enjoyed your blog post, anything we can do to get more people to Florida is great for all concerned. Thanks again.
