Apollo 13 celebration
Space Center Houston is celebrating the Apollo 13 mission and invites members to take part in mission memories on Saturday, April 17, the 51st anniversary of the crew’s safe return to Earth, splashdown day.
Experience two livestreamed panel discussions with Apollo-era legends and current NASA experts in Astronaut Gallery. Discovery Circle members can experience the discussions from the comfort of the Mission Briefing Center by invitation only. This Discovery Circle member event will be socially distanced, and space is limited. Those in attendance will receive an autographed commemorative photo.
Make it your mission to see the new Apollo 13 sculpture, the actual Apollo 17 command module, the new spring exhibit, Apollo: When We Went to the Moon, and more that tells the story of historic feats of the past and future of space exploration.
Discovery Briefings are exclusive opportunities for Discovery Circle members to get behind the scenes and dive deep with curators, space historians, current NASA scientists, and others investigating deep space exploration. Members ask intriguing questions throughout the presentations, but the one-to-one and small group conversations members typically enjoy with the presenters at the conclusion have become a hallmark of the series.
Discovery Briefing: Moon Rocks
Friday, April 30 | 6:30-8 p.m.
Space Center Houston exhibits director Paul Spana will lead a discussion about our Lunar Vault and the largest display of Moon rocks on public display in the world. Please note that space is limited and RSVP is required.
Six different Apollo missions brought lunar rocks to Earth. To study and preserve these priceless rocks, NASA created the Lunar Sample Laboratory Facility at NASA Johnson Space Center.
The lunar vault in Starship Gallery at Space Center Houston is a certified clean room. The equipment seen in the room is the same equipment used in Lunar Sample Laboratory Facility.
In Space Center Houston’s Lunar Vault, you can gaze at actual Moon rocks, kept in a pure nitrogen environment as they are kept at NASA to preserve them. You can check out a cross-section of a lunar sample under a microscope and see the devices that go into studying these fascinating bits of the Moon.

Please note that all guests are currently experiencing limited opportunities to visit the restored Apollo Mission Control Center. As such, we ask members to verify their plans to visit to Space Center Houston prior to claiming tour tickets.
Timed tickets for other regularly scheduled NASA Tram Tour destinations are not required and priority boarding for members will continue as usual.
*Abuse of the timed ticketing system includes and is not limited to commercial use and the sale of tours. As noted in the terms and conditions of membership, evidence that the benefits and privileges of membership are being abused, in particular online timed ticketing, is grounds for revocation of the membership and all associated benefits without refund.
