New Mexico Museum of Space History & Tombaugh IMAX Theater:

We wish to thank Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia for some of the images and information on this page. We share information with Wikipedia.

The New Mexico Museum of Space History & Tombaugh IMAX Theater, is a museum and planetarium complex in Alamogordo, New Mexico, dedicated to artifacts and displays related to space flight and the space age. It includes the International Space Hall of Fame.

The Museum of Space History highlights the role that New Mexico has had in the U. S. space program, and is one of eight museums administered by the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs. The museum has been accredited by American Association of Museums since 1993.

The museum includes exhibits about the planets of the Solar System, space flight and the primates that were used in early space flight experiments conducted by the United States.

The museum holds mock-ups and training units of many important space artifacts such as satellites, the Space Shuttle, and the lunar lander (the originals are still in space or on the moon).

The Clyde W. Tombaugh IMAX Theater and Planetarium has a projection dome that serves as both an IMAX screen and as a planetarium. IMAX-format films are screened daily.

It is named after the man who discovered Pluto.

The author of this website, George DeLange, had the pleasure of visiting with Clyde Tombaugh on four different occasions and found Clyde to be a very humble, nice man, and a pleasure to visit with.

The Hubbard Space Science Education Building was dedicated in Spring 1991. It holds classrooms and laboratories and is the site of the annual Shuttle Camps.

A Little Joe II in the museum's rocket park, viewed from the museum building. The John P. Stapp Air and Space Park is an outdoor exhibit area holding large artifacts, including the Solar Wind No. 1 rocket sled ridden by Stapp.

Ham, who in 1961 became the first chimp in space, is buried at the museum in front of the flagpoles.

The Astronaut Memorial Garden was created and dedicated to the memory of the astronauts who died in the Challenger explosion. After the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster, the names of Columbia's astronauts were added to the memorial.

The Daisy Track (named after the Daisy air rifle) was an air-powered sled track used to test safety devices, including the ancestor of the automobile seat belt. The museum rescued the pieces of the Daisy Track in 1986 and reassembled them as an outdoor exhibit in 2004. The Daisy Track exhibit is partly outside and partly inside a building that has some other exhibits. A full-sized replica of Spaceship One is also in this building.

The State of New Mexico has agreed to recognize the Apollo 11 Tranquility Base Site on the Moon as an historic archaeological site as part of their ARMS database in the Laboratory of Anthropology (LA) in Santa Fe, NM. A marker was placed at the New Mexico Museum of Space History in Alamogordo, NM Saturday, May 6, commemorating the July 20, 1969 Landing on the Moon as LA 2,000,000.

LA 2,000,000 represents the site on the Moon with the New Mexico Museum of Space History serving as its host on Earth. The location of the this marker in NM at UTM Coordinates Zone 13 E 413969/N3642735 will be linked forever to Lunar Coordinates 0.67266 degrees N latitude 23.47298 degrees E longitude, the first human landing site on the Moon.

LA 2,000,000 is now in the State of New Mexico ARMS database which is the largest archaeological database in the United States. This action makes New Mexico the first state to recognize the significance of the historic archaeological assemblage and international heritage status of Tranquility Base on the Moon.
