On September 12, 1962, JFK pledged to put a man on the moon. Fifty years later, we put a space capsule in our museum!

On the 50th anniversary of President Kennedy’s memorable speech at Rice University, the JFK Presidential Library and Museum unveiled a special new installation featuring Freedom 7, the iconic space capsule that Commander Alan B Shepard, Jr. piloted on the first American manned flight into space.

The capsule is scheduled to be on display at the museum through December 2015.
