Did you know the Saturn V rocket included a launch abort system? This system was designed to separate the Command Module that housed the crew from the rocket in case of a problem during launch. The Launch Abort system is explained in one of the featured hologram presentations.

Other Apollo Missions

A secondary Hologram Projector was installed to feature trivia and facts the Apollo missions that followed Apollo 11.
