Description

Apollo 11 lunar excursion module (LEM), 'Eagle'. Replica, shown in the Space Gallery of the Science Museum. This is a reconstruction of the lunar lander used by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on man's first visit to the Moon, 21 July 1969. Made of two separate halves, the module's lower, descent stage contained the engine which could be throttled to control the rate of descent. The upper, ascent stage contained a presurised crew compartment and a rocket engine designed to lift the astronauts back to the Apollo spacecraft.
