WASHINGTON – Doubt National Museum of the River and the Spatial two galleries – & # 39; Apollo to the Moon & # 39; and & # 39; A & # 39; look at the Earth & # 39; – because it's a & # 39; embark on a seven year renewable project. Seven closures of other galleries in early January.
Most of the museum's largest attractions, such as St Louis's Spirit and his / her; moon rock, still on display, but hundreds of other materials will disappear. It is worth these five to be on a trip you can see over the next month.
Eyes on Earth
This 3-D interactive format, designed by the Jet Laboratory Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology, is one of the most fun "toys" in the Museum of Space and Space. Visitors can use railways to circulate around a map of the world, using data from NASA Climate Change Measurement and Climate Satellites to monitor water levels, temperatures and storms. In a gallery that is a little dusty feeling, this is one of the few shows that children and grandparents have; come in for a closer look.
Beyond scenes, this gallery focuses on what it says & # 39; The Sky Spies and how information was obtained using aircraft from the Civil War during the Cold War. Lockheed U-2 is in a & # 39; aircraft, one of the spy planes that traveled high-level enterprises across the Soviet Union, Cuba and other hot places. Gallery also has a & # 39; including things pertaining to the pilot Francis Gary Powers, which was planned over Russia in 1960, including a diary; prison and a broth that gave him past the prison.
F-1 engine from Rocaid Satarn V
To power the Apollo for the Moon program, NASA used the largest and most powerful rocket ever built: the Saturn V. There were five F-1 engines at its base, each side of 12 feet in attack, and 1.5 million pounds of sound. One of the major engines is displayed at the Air and Spa Museum, and a system of mirror is used to show what a series of five would look like.
A 17-moon apollo movie on land
Do you want to watch out of the window when your airplane is & # 39; come ashore? This amazing installation is as likely and a million times cooler. A replication of the Apollo 17 white model which offers visitors a look at a final of 11,000 feet to the moon's surface through "windows," and very hard radio recordings of the president Eugene Cernan and the Harrison Schmitt pilot describing the picture in the likelihood of real time.
Lunar Rory Vehicle
The Lunar Roving carriage has never been introduced into the moon: the LRVs used on Apollo's three three trials are still seated on the surface. This is the ultimate test unit and it is "a very close replica of the units that would travel." – – Text & Illustrations with the Washington Post
