One Giant Leap: A Moon Odyssey
Take a simulated Moon-walk, try on a space helmet, climb into a Mercury capsule, and land a lunar module!
Chabot's hands-on exhibit explores legends and science fiction about the Moon; the Space Race and the Moon landings; and the Earth-Moon system. Learn what the Moon is made of, how it affects the Earth, what causes Moon phases, gravity on the Moon, and more. You can even take a look at an ancient piece of the Moon up close! The exhibit includes space artifacts and replicas, from Sputnik and Mercury to Gemini and Apollo.
