Lunar Lander Hancock County Welcome Center – Mississippi Mondays February 11, 2019

I wasn’t familiar with this attraction until I was digging through Roadside America’s Mississippi collection: https://www.roadsideamerica.com/location/ms/all.

If you didn’t know, Mississippi is home to the John C. Stennis Space Center https://www.nasa.gov/centers/stennis/home/index.htmlorhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_C._Stennis_Space_Center. It’s not too far, 8.6 miles per Google Mapshttps://www.google.com/maps/dir/Lunar+Lander+Exhibit,+Interstate+10,+Pearlington,+MS/John+C.+Stennis+Space+Center,+MS/@30.3433933,-89.643588,9653m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m13!4m12!1m5!1m1!1s0x889ddb6e9b21d389:0xa4d9c87bed778a17!2m2!1d-89.5997095!2d30.3139659!1m5!1m1!1s0x889dc4c3b42067bf:0x443d5689865b14e!2m2!1d-89.5994225!2d30.3619837, from the Lunar Lander.

The footprints in some of the photos belong to Fred Haise: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fred_Haise.

I used to own a toy model of the Lunar Lander; believe it was this or a similar one: https://airandspace.si.edu/collection-objects/model-kit-lunar-module-148-0.

It’s on my Bucket List to visit the area and see the Lunar Lander.
