Landing on the Moon: How It Almost Didn't Happen

Armstrong Air and Space Museum

with Greg Brown and Chris Moynihan

About the Armstrong Air and Space Museum

As space exploration has evolved, so have the exhibits at the Armstrong Air & Space Museum. But the focus has remained the same: to stand not only as a repository of Ohio's aeronautical history and a monument to Ohio's contribution to aviation and space exploration, but also as a tribute to Ohioan Neil Armstrong, whose "one small step for a man" was indeed a "giant leap for mankind."
