one_shot_160628
A leftover Lunar Module designed to ferry two astronauts to a landing on the Moon and then back to their orbiting command ship languishes unused in the Saturn V Center at Kennedy Space Center. Built for the Moon, the craft became the victim of budget cuts that canceled any more Apollo lunar flights after Apollo 17. Hanging near by is the Apollo 13 mission patch. Their Lunar Module never landed on the Moon, either, but instead was used as a lifeboat when their Service Module exploded halfway to the Moon.
