This exhibit at the Oklahoma History Center explores the state’s aviators and astronauts, from Gordon Cooper and John Herrington to Shannon Lucid. Along with personal items utilized by astronauts, visitors will also find objects associated with the U.S. air and space program.
The centerpiece is the Skylab 4 Apollo Command Module (CM-118) which carried the final Skylab crew of astronauts Gerald Carr (commander), Edward Gibson (science pilot) and William Pogue (pilot) into space to live and work in the Skylab Orbiting Laboratory, or Space Station. The final Skylab mission was the longest mission flown by any Apollo command module. It flew from November 16, 1973, to February 8, 1974, for a total of 84 days in space.
