Event Description: 

Follow the legendary career of Captain James A. Lovell, Jr.—an astronaut immortalized on film as the Commander of Apollo 13—from his rocket crazed childhood through his quest for the Moon. At every point in our exhibition Capt. Lovell is there—from his rejection from the Mercury Program in the late 1950's—to two Gemini missions in the 1960s, to the successful failure of Apollo 13. Alongside Lovell, we will share the stories of Lovell’s family, NASA’s Mission Control, and others from around the world who made the quest to land a man on the Moon possible.
