"AREA 37: Richard Nixon and the History of America in
Space," features more than 50 photos, documents, and space-age
artifacts describing RN's role in the space program beginning with his 1957
suggestion to President Eisenhower that NASA be established. The show features a
moon rock, a recording of the conversation between the President and the Apollo
11 astronauts when they landed on the moon in July 1969, a full-size Apollo
space suit, and the text of the speech the RN would have given if Armstrong and
Aldrin had been stranded forever at Tranquility Base.
