Astronaut’s moon rock award moved from Disney’s Epcot to museum

Fifty years after it was brought back from the moon, a small lunar rock has moved from the “Most Magical Place on Earth” to the “Show Me State.”

NASA presented the moon rock to The Space Museum and Grissom Center in Bonne Terre, Missouri on Saturday (April 2), 15 years after it was first placed on exhibit at the Epcot theme park at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. In both instances, the lunar display was done to honor Virgil “Gus” Grissom, the United States’ second astronaut to fly into space.
