Join us for an exciting evening highlighting the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 9 with the original Command Module and its entire crew!
On March 13, 2019 the San Diego Air & Space Museum will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the flight of Apollo 9! Meet the entire three-person crew -- James McDivitt, David Scott and Rusty Schweickart – as well as flight directors Gerry Griffin, Gene Kranz and more!
The magnificent accomplishments of the Apollo lunar landing program were only possible after extensive development and testing of two all-new piloted spacecraft and a launch vehicle of unprecedented complexity and size – the famous Saturn V.
Apollo 9 paved the way for later lunar exploration with a series of milestones, including the first Extravehicular Activity for the Apollo program, NASA’s first two-man EVA, the first manned test flight of the lunar module, and the first docking of two manned American spacecraft.
This is a rare opportunity to meet the men responsible for helping America take the critically important next steps just months before Apollo 11’s epic Moon landing. Don’t Miss It!
