Lunar Module Restoration

Lunar Module Restoration

Museum intern Bethany Day shows a visitor a piece of the foil that will be replaced on the Lunar Module 2.

The LM2 is being restored in full view of the public at the National Air and Space Museum's Mall building June 22-24. Museum specialists, volunteers and curators and Paul Fjeld, an expert on authentic restorations of the Mylar coverings, are working to get the LM2 ready for its moment in the spotlight during the Apollo anniversary events in July 2009.
