The Kennedy Space Center has added two interactive hologram projectors to educate visitors to the complex about aspects of the Apollo Missions. The displays create a 3D effect with the projections floating in mid air. This gives a more futuristic viewpoint to visitors to the complex than traditional 2D monitors.
The special effects exhibits were created by Trade Show Holograms. Established in 2006 the company is an industry leader in creating exciting, interactive 3D presentations for both trade shows and museum display. At a trade show exhibitors need something new and interesting to draw attendees to their booth. The Hologram Projector does more than just draw attention. It offers a presentation of a clients message in a visually interesting media.
The high tech exhibits are available for both purchase for permanent display or rental for short term use like trade shows. The projectors are interactive and allow guests to select from multiple viewing choices via a touch screen. The presentation featured in the video below explains the process of Lunar Extraction and visually shows the process of the CSM ( Command Service Module ) removing and then docking with the LM ( Lunar Module ) .
The 3D exhibits are part of NASA’s celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing but will remain on permanent display at the Saturn V Complex at the Kennedy Space Center. They have proven very popular with Space Center visitors. Presentations include Lunar Extraction, information on the Rover and how it was delivered to the moon, information on the near mission ending fuel shortage experience during the Apollo 11 moon landing, the launch abort system designed to save the crew during a failed launch and much more. New presentations will be added and updated in the future featuring additional trivia, facts and information on the Apollo Programs.
The Kennedy Space Center in Florida has added two dual sided Hologram projectors to their Apollo/Saturn V display. The 3D holographic projection kiosks feature multiple hologram programs in full 1080 HD quality, full color and with audio narration. The presentations offer viewers a futuristic high tech way to learn interesting facts and trivia on NASA’s Apollo Program.
Most often used for trade show applications where a company might use the technology to present highlights of their product to new client the displays are also used in museums.

Additional presentations will be added but currently the displays feature 6 programs. These 6 were chosen as they feature trivia not known by many Apollo fans.
