The Apollo monument designed by artist Sandy Storm of Merritt Island was built to honor the space workers and astronauts of the Apollo Program who made exploring the moon a reality. Twelve bronze panels will surround the base of the monument telling the Apollo story. On permanent display at Apollo are bronzed handprints of all the living Apollo Astronauts, where young and old alike can put their hands in the handprints of men who walked on the moon. Raised bronze profiles, by artist Sandy Storm, are there for those astronauts who have died.




Space View Park
A 2002 Retrospective

This is probably the very best place to view a Space Shuttle Launch. "Old timers" are often here and happy to talk. The U.S. Space Walk of Fame Foundation raises funds by selling souvenirs. You know what is happening through the live NASA news feed over loud speakers. It's a thrilling experience to share the drama with hundreds of Space enthusiasts.
