"The command module was the home of the astronauts," Muir-Harmony explained. "The mission itself was just over 8 days – when you see the command module personally, you feel what it is like to live and work in space and the sense of technology at that time, and how complex it was just as well.

"I think you feel good, why astronauts had to train as much as they did and go through so many simulations," she added. "This is a very special part of the collection."
The Colombian Command Module is part of the Desert Moon: Mission of Apollo 11, traveling exhibition Smithsonian, which is at the Seattle Flight Museum until September 2, 2019. Seattle is the fourth stop of a national tour for the show. The command module will return to the Smithsonian exhibition in 2022 when the new exhibition of the Luna Museum Destination is opened. "AVOID YOUR LIGHT" MYR-Harmony told Fox News that Apollo 11's influence remains strong. "I am excited by some of the reflections the astronauts have had on their experience in space," she said. "They said," You know, we went to the moon and we found Earth and gratitude for Earth. "
