Launch date for the final flight of space shuttle Discovery is scheduled for Feb. 24. We have some relevant news.
Before Armstrong and Aldrin walked on the moon, there was the historic Apollo 8. The 3-man crew of mission Commander Frank Borman, Command Module Pilot James Lovell, and Lunar Module Pilot William Anders became the first humans to directly see the far side of the Moon.
Apollo 8 was the first human spaceflight to leave Earth orbit; the first crewed voyage to return to planet Earth from another celestial body – Earth's Moon.
We have lift off! Legacy Motors has taken delivery of Dragon's 1:72 model Apollo 8 Command Module.
In the Legacy Motors Sci Fi wing, we have several NASA notables. These are milestone's in man's progress into the celestial reaches.
