The story of its mission, and its recovery after 38 years on the floor of the Atlantic Ocean, is fascinating. *Trading cards will be available at the Box Office, are limited to one set per Box Office transaction and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Liberty Bell 7 is splashing down at the Cosmosphere, following nearly six years of being on exhibit throughout the world. Here are some drawings of what I am trying to describe. Posts: 243 From: Registered: Jun 2014: posted 10-23-2014 06:53 AM After a considerable two year search I was finally able to acquire a Liberty Bell 7 Kansas Cosmosphere artifact lucite display for my collection this week. I am no expert but that is what I remember being told about my piece. Upon impact with the ocean, the bag would cushion the impact. The only difference is my artifact has slightly less corrosion and has what appears to be writing in black or blue felt tipped pen on one side of the surface of the collar over the tube. As I remember being told or reading somewhere it was part if a landing bag attached to the bottom of the vehicle. There is a triangular shaped collar (curved on one side) over the tube on the one end. It is one of the large lucite displays 7x5 inches. Learn more about the mission and the Cosmosphere’s role in the film in this new exhibit near the Cosmosphere Café, at the top of the museum entrance. SpaceWorks, a division of the Cosmosphere which helped restore the craft, had a major role in re-creating the mission for the 1995 movie “Apollo 13”— producing more than 80 percent of the movie’s props. Liberty Bell 7 was the spacecraft that took the second U.S. astronaut, Gus Grissom, into space before sinking in the Atlantic Ocean, where it stayed for nearly 40 years. A Google search on the history of felt pens indicates felt pens were not readily used until the mid-1960s. Who knows I may bid on this one also. I was hoping folks here could help me identify what the artifact in the lucite is. With daring stories of survival, both Liberty Bell 7 and the Odyssey—the spacecraft used during the Apollo 13 mission—demonstrate the tenacity of the American spirit and our ability to overcome challenges.

Beginning Tuesday, June 16, visitors to the Smithsonian-affiliated space museum in Hutchinson, KS, will have the opportunity to get up close to an amazing piece of space history when the Mercury spacecraft, which took the second U.S. astronaut into space, returns to its home museum. Museum-goers can also participate in special activities planned for the “Summer Space Splashdown”, honoring both the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 13 mission and the Liberty Bell 7’s return. The Cosmosphere’s “Summer Space Splashdown” activities include new exhibits, an Apollo 13 artifact scavenger hunt and the opportunity to collect a set of commemorative trading cards* for the Apollo 13 mission. Here, one can begin to understand the important testing and breaking of boundaries of high altitude and high-speed flight and the effects it had on humans and hardware. This bolt through the tube would in my opinion impede any fluid or gas/oxygen etc. X-Plane GalleryAt the bottom of the museum entrance, visitors will find a brand new X-Plane gallery, introducing them to the Space Race story told throughout the Cosmosphere’s museum. Prior to splashdown the heat shield would separate from the vehicle by a couple of feet and be held in place by this landing bag. Thanks. Perhaps somebody could confirm this for me and any additional information you can offer is greatly appreciated. This new gallery also allows additional artifacts to be displayed—including a new full-view of the cockpit of the replica Bell X-1 ‘Glamorous Glennis’, a display of Kansas Astronaut Joe Engle’s X-15 flight suit, as well as an XLR99 rocket engine from the X-15 program. The Liberty Bell 7 is one of those spacecraft. profile | register | preferences | faq | search.
