After spending 46 years parked at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum, the Apollo 11 command module Columbia will travel again. This time, the journey will not be quite as epic as to the moon and back, but the trip is still historic. The spacecraft will visit the cities of Seattle, Houston, St. Louis and Pittsburgh for a new traveling exhibition, “Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission.”

About aritter2014

I am a Librarian. To be honest, I wouldn't want to do anything else. I have a strong background in architecture, computer technology, English literature, Internet applications, web site design, film studies and modern art. I would like to use this page to express my personal musings and experiences on news, pop culture, nature, art, science, technology and what ever becomes a curiosity.
