The Lunar Module Has “Landed” at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex


Enhancements are underway to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11. Lunar Module 9 will be displayed under the Saturn V rocket.

CAPE CANAVERAL (March 25, 2019) – KENNEDY SPACE CENTER – Lunar Module 9 (LM-9) has “landed” at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex’s Apollo/Saturn V Center. This summer, guests will be able to get a closer look at LM-9, one of only three remaining Lunar Modules designed for mission use. Previously suspended from the ceiling, the relocation of the module is part of an initiative to reimagine the Apollo/Saturn V Center as Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex gears up for the 50th anniversary celebration of Apollo 11.

Originally intended to fly on Apollo 15, LM-9 was replaced with an Extended Lunar Module when the Lunar Rover was added to the mission. In 2017, this American relic was completely refurbished to preserve for generations to come. The careful relocation of the historic artifact took place over several hours to ensure its safety. Visit the following link to view a time-lapse of the move.
