1st space-flown NASA capsule lands at Long Island museum

An early American spacecraft that survived two launches — albeit, the first one only reaching inches above the ground — has touched down at a museum in Long Island, New York.

The United States’ first production spacecraft to be launched into space, Mercury-Redstone 1A (MR-1A), is now on exhibit (opens in new tab) at the Cradle of Aviation in Garden City. The capsule is on long-term loan from the Smithsonian.
