Armstrong Air and Space Museum

Story:

The Armstrong Air and Space Museum, designed to resemble a futuristic moon base, shares the story of Wapakoneta's Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon. The museum's artifacts include the Gemini VIII spacecraft, which conducted the first docking of two spacecraft in orbit, but then suffered the first critical in-space system failure of a U.S. spacecraft. With the astronauts' lives in danger, the mission was aborted and the crew returned safely.
