The International Spaceflight Museum (ISM), which resides on Alpha and Bravo, is a solely Second Life build, which provides exhibits and hosts events about real-world spacecraft and space exploration. A real-life organization has been created to support the museum; the ISM Corporation, a Kansas non-profit corporation.
Head on down and join in the fun: musical performances, auctions and raffles run from noon onwards, you get to meet a whole host of other folk interested in supporting the museum, and you and your friends can explore the museum while you're there!
The Saturn V rocket is the largest rocket exhibit at the ISM, and it needs your help! By entering a bid on eBay, you can sponsor this exhibit for the next six months, thereby ensuring its future and therefore also supporting the whole museum. There will also be a raffle in which a model of the Saturn V can be won.
This anniversary also heralds the opening of the new gift shop annex inside the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB). A lot of the items there will be discounted for the period of the anniversary celebrations only.
Self-guided tours of the museum are available, however ISM staff will also be around the site to answer questions.
The musical lineup is as follows:
1:00 pm Phoe Nix
2:00 pm Chronic Skronski
3:00 pm Bara Jonson
6:00 pm Noma Falta
7:00 pm until closing Cypress Rosewood
(All times SLT/US Pacific time)
