El Pomar Space Gallery Features Launch to the Moon
The El Pomar Space Gallery features just a small percentage of the Space Foundation's extensive collection of space artifacts and memorabilia. The opening exhibit, entitled Launch to the Moon, chronicles the U.S./Soviet race to the Moon from 1959-1976. The space gallery is named in honor of El Pomar Foundation, the primary contributor to our world headquarters building acquisition.
