Take a simulated Moon-walk, try on a space helmet, climb into a Mercury capsule and land a lunar module! Chabot's new 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.
