Apollo Command Module Trainer
The Apollo Command Module simulator that has been in the Cosmosphere's Education department, and used for FATP and other camps, was dismantled today and taken to Space Works for a project.
Restoration and Collections folks were poring over the details before it left the building.
This was a trainer used by NASA, and a few parts of it are things that could have been taken out of the trainer, and put on to a mission. One of those parts was the three seats.
Another are these struts. The four on the right are "real" and the two on the left are ones fabricated here.
Camp is celebrating its 25th anniversary this summer with a big reunion and many of the former campers who will be returning to the Cosmosphere July 30-Aug. 1 for the reunion will remember this trainer. Needless to say, it looked a little different today.
If you, or someone you know, is a former camper, please send your updated contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can send you details about the reunion this summer.
