A new exhibit at the Arizona History Museum in Tucson aims to make sure the state’s place in the history of space flight is not forgotten.
“Ready to Launch: Arizona’s Place in Space” showcases how the state helped create a path to the stars.
It will be on display until Nov. 30 at the museum just west of the University of Arizona campus.
Many Apollo-era astronauts trained in Arizona. The exhibit includes relics such as a spacesuit worn by Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin on loan from NASA.
