Space Gallery

The Allan and Malcolm Lockheed and Glenn Martin Space Gallery showcases the Space Shuttle Exhibit featuring NASA’s first Crew Compartment Trainer (CCT-1), a high-fidelity representation of a space shuttle crew station used primarily for on-orbit crew training and engineering evaluations. As a major exhibit component of that gallery, visitors will be able to walk onto a full-size representation of a NASA space shuttle payload bay and look inside the CCT-1 cockpit and mid-deck areas. The gallery also includes a Titan IVB space launch vehicle, Mercury, Gemini and Apollo spacecraft, and many other NASA artifacts and a variety of astronaut equipment. A range of satellites and related items showcase the Air Force’s vast reconnaissance, early warning, communications and other space-based capabilities. Fourth Building Gallery Overview Video.
