According to a report from WMUR, 50 years ago, the Apollo 11 mission left the earth and in celebration of the mission, the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center in Concord is opening up a new exhibit called, "To The Moon."  The exhibit celebrates the Apollo 11 astronauts with commemorative paintings, pictures and plates.  Many of the items on display in the exhibit were taken to the museum by personal collectors.

The report states that Jeanne Gerulskis, Executive Director of the Discovery Center said:

When we first landed on the moon, it was a worldwide phenomenon, and everyone on the whole planet was excited..... When we first walked on the moon, I think it was something that united the whole world.......

I am fascinated by the moon.  It is my place of zen early in the morning - something that makes me feel connected to the Universe.  I can't wait to see this exhibit.  It lifts off this Saturday at the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center in Concord.
