This silent home movie captures a Wright family visit to John F. Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Shot in the late 1970s, the footage first focuses on many highlights from NASA’s lunar-landing missions, including a Moon rock and Lunar Module. The Wrights next walk through the Rocket Garden, an outdoor display of historic rockets and launch vehicles. From left to right, the Atlas-Agena, Thor-Delta, Juno I, Juno II, and Gemini-Titan II are seen. Finally, the family drives around Launch Complex 39, passing by the Vehicle Assembly Building. The home movie also includes the Wright family having fun in their backyard, playing on the swing set and petting their puppy.
