On Thursday 26 September 2013 the Science Museum is offering visitors the rare opportunity to see the interior of one of the Museum’s most important objects, the Apollo 10 Command Module.

The capsule will be opened at 10.30 in the gallery and visitors and will be given glimpses inside via a handheld camera.

This is the actual spacecraft that took Commander Thomas P. Stafford, Command Module Pilot John W. Young and Lunar Module Pilot Eugene A. Cernan around the Moon two months before the first landing.

The capsule will be open from 10.30-12.00 and from 14.00-16.00pm with Museum staff taking questions from visitors.

In the afternoon, Doug Millard, Deputy Keeper of Technologies and Engineering, will be answering questions about Apollo 10 and the Museum’s Space Technology collection.
