Project Egress

This July, the world celebrated the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 - the first time humankind set foot on the moon. The Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum (NASM) collaborated with Adam Savage and Tested.com on a special build project to commemorate this historic event. Using advanced 3D scans of the Apollo 11 Command Module, captured by the Smithsonian’s Digitization Program Office, and original engineering drawings from the Smithsonian archives, Adam constructed a life size replica of the CM hatch to exhibit at NASM.
