Virginia Air and Space Center Review
The Virginia Air and Space Center traces the history of flight and space exploration. The nine-story, futuristic, $30 million center is the visitor center for NASA Langley Research Center and Langley Air Force Base. Its space artifacts include a 3-billion-year-old moon rock, the Apollo 12 command capsule, and a lunar lander. The center also holds a dozen full-size aircraft, a 3-D IMAX theater that was recently renovated, a variety of flight simulators, and hands-on exhibits that let you see yourself as an astronaut or launch a rocket.
