Apollo Command Module Trainer

This morning the Apollo Command Module Trainer that has been used by campers at the Cosmosphere was dismantled for a project. I asked Greg to come in and take some photos, and thought I'd share some with you.

This was a trainer used by NASA, but there are parts fabricated by Space Works. You can see in these struts the four on the right are original, and the two on the left are fabricated.

This has been in the education department and used by camp goers for many years now.

Some parts on the trainers were identical to those things used on missions. The biggest piece in this one that fell into that category would be the seats.

Some time ago I did a vision collage that had a part of it that said, "Escape the Ordinary." I can honestly say my work life achieves that on a regular basis.
