July 20th, 2019 will mark the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing Mission. NASA is celebrating the date with the addition of Apollo 11 Holographic Displays.
Guests at Florida’s Kennedy Space Center can help celebrate the Apollo Anniversary with 2 interactive hologram projectors. Visitors can learn interesting facts about the various Apollo missions via interactive touch screens. Did you know the Lunar Module almost ran out of fuel during its critical last minute of landing? What is the BBQ roll and why did they need to do that? Did you know about the Launch Abort System that was part of the Saturn V rocket? How did later Apollo Missions take a dune buggy to the moon? These are some of the topics presented in 3D holographic form.
The 3D exhibits were designed and built by Trade Show Holograms, a company specializing in holographic effects for the trade show booth industry and normally offer them as rentals. The displays are proving popular with guests visiting the Kennedy Space Center in Titusville, FL. The combination of the 3D projection floating in mid air, the informative narrative and the surprising Apollo Mission trivia guests can use modern technology to learn about the Apollo missions.
