The Cradle of Aviation Museum. This is the front of the single Lunar Excursion Module (LEM) simulator built. All Apollo astronauts trained on it between 1968 and 1972. Each crew member had a set of flight controls, as well as a triangular window (note the lack of seats!). The hatch at the bottom is where they would get out of the LEM for the lunar walks. The small window at the top left is to help them dock with the Command Module. [Canon EOS 40D, EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM lens, Speedlite 580EX II flash]
