For all of human history, the earth’s inhabitants have gazed up at the night sky, in awe of the most significant object floating above – the Moon. They told stories about its place in our existence. Some even dare to dream of traveling there, to the unknown and setting foot on its surface. Yet down through the millenniums, it remained out of reach.
All of that changed on July 20th, 1969, at 20:17 UTC, when the first travelers from the planet Earth landed upon the Moon’s surface. On that day, the world experienced an accomplishment like no other. It is, by all measures, one of the most incredible feats humankind ever accomplished. For the first time in history, an entire planet united because of a dream and a desire to make the unknown known.
The most extraordinary achievement ever undertaken in human history
Towering over three hundred and sixty feet tall, weighing six and a half million pounds and producing over seven and a half million pounds of thrust, the Saturn 5 is an engineering marvel forged out of five thousand years of human innovation culminating in its creation. Envisioned and created by tens of thousands of individuals, including engineers, scientists, mathematicians, professors, machinists, drafting technicians, electricians, programmers, assemblers, designers, and many more disciplines.
The Flight Deck
It is here where the impossible becomes possible. It is here where humans and machines interface. It is here where every vital operation, including navigation, propulsion, communication, and life support, is calculated, calibrated, and controlled intricately.
It is both an engineering feat and a work of art.
Nothing like it ever existed before and most likely will never be created again in human history.
A faithful reproduction
We are proud to offer you a full-scale reproduction of the Apollo command module flight deck for the first time. Add a touch of inspiration to your home and leave no doubt, in your mind or anyone else’s, that the future is still something we are building – that visions are worth pursuing and that, in the depths of our imaginations, there are marvels for us to behold.
This Command Module Control Panel is a faithful reproduction to honor all of those who contributed to the success of the Apollo Missions. A tribute to all the astronauts, scientists, engineers, and other professionals who sacrificed so much to bring this dream to reality. It celebrates a monumental accomplishment and allows for reflection when individuals worked together for a common goal.
Academy Award Team
Mark Lasoff, the team leader, is an Academy Award-winning artist for his work on the movie Titanic. His credits also include Apollo 13, Avatar, and Heros and Legends for the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. His ability to merge technology and artistic talent has always yielded great success. Now, for the first time, he put a unique team together of talented professionals to design and recreate the Apollo Command Module Control panel in all its glory. This is a unique opportunity for anyone and everyone to own a piece of history.
Meticulously recreated from original blueprints and verified by 3D scans from the Smithsonian Museum, this highly accurate display is as close as one can get to the original without sitting in the actual Command Module. Remember your mission to get to the moon and back? One glance at this amazing replica will make it feel real!
Meticulously recreated from original blueprints
