Walk Among Giants

A Mercury-Redstone 3 rocket launched the aspirations of an entire country in 1961, when Alan Shepard completed the first U.S. human space flight. NASA’s Mercury, Gemini and Apollo programs are represented by this garden of giants, not just as engineering feats of technology, but also as tribute to the scientists and engineers who turned dreams of spaceflight into reality. Let a space expert guide you through a history of early rocket science during daily guided tours.
