Making Astronauts: Bucks County to the Moon explores the history of Warminster Township’s Naval Air Development Center and the crucial role it played in training and preparing astronauts for America’s early space program. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Apollo 11 moon landing, the exhibit shows that to reach the moon, America’s astronauts first had to come to Bucks County.
