Want to get behind the controls of the original space roadster (a Mercury space capsule), see just how much rocket it took to put three men on the Moon and try your hand at landing there just as it was done the first time? We didn't just go to the Moon, we brought some of it back to Earth - Chabot has a piece of it! - a moon rock from the Apollo 15 Mission, 3.3 billion years old and still looking like it did when it was born.
