Apollo 11 Exhibit at Houghton Library

While on site doing some field documentation (we’re designing masonry repairs for the building) I had the opportunity to take in this exhibit at Harvard’s Houghton Library. Highly recommended if you’re in the area.

On display are landmarks in the history of science from Houghton Library’s collections—such as first editions of Copernicus, Galileo, and Newton—together with rarely exhibited highlights from a private spaceflight collection, including artifacts used during the Apollo 11 mission and on the moon itself by astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. Together, these objects illuminate the path of research and discovery that made Apollo 11 possible.

The exhibition is free and open to the public. Closes August 3.
