Join us at TechWorks! for the first in a series of 50th anniversary events celebrating Southern Tier technology that helped NASA win the Space Race. The series kicks off with three screens showing vintage Cartoons, Sci-Fi and NASA footage, including The Flight of Apollo 7 –NASA’s First Manned Project Apollo Space Flight. During intermission, create souvenir printouts with Apollo-era computers and visit the Anscochome in Space exhibit.
Launched from Cape Kennedy October 11, 1968, Apollo VII had simply stated missions: demonstrate the capability of spacecraft, support facilities, and their crews to launch, fly, rendezvous, and return safely. Above is a view of the “angry alligator” of the ejected Saturn rocket, which was used to emulate docking with the Lunar Excursion Module (LEM).
