These are the the highlights commemorating the 50th anniversary of the excursions by humans into the void of space, presented by the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC.

Last night they held a preview for Air and Space Society Members. The temporary exhibit officially opened today, and is on public display at the museum on the National Mall until June 8, 2015. I just wanted to share photos, and I will be returning (several times, most likely) because this is a wonderful gallery.
