    Liberty Bell 7 is set to splashdown at the Cosmosphere, following nearly six years of being on exhibit throughout the world.  Beginning Tuesday, June 16, visitors to the Smithsonian-affiliated space museum in Hutchinson, KS, will have the opportunity to get up close to an amazing piece of space history when the Mercury spacecraft, which took the second U.S. astronaut into space, returns to its home museum.  The craft will be on display in the Cosmosphere Grand Lobby through the remainder of 2020.

  • Coffee at the Cosmo: Liberty Bell 7

    Date: Thursday, August 20, 2020 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM
    Location:Online

    This will be a virtual presentation only. Join us live on our Facebook page on the day of the event or on Zoom at cosmomeeting.org.

    Grab your mug of Joe, sit back in the comfort of your own home and enjoy this free presentation titled, "Liberty Bell 7: The Peril and Promise of Space Exploration," with Cosmosphere President and CEO, Jim Remar. This presentation will be presented in front of the actual Liberty Bell 7 spacecraft!

    Attendees will learn the story of how astronaut Gus Grissom's Liberty Bell 7 was recovered from the ocean floor in 1999 after spending nearly 40 years submerged at a depth of more than 15,000 feet (deeper than the Titanic).  SpaceWorks, a division of the Cosmosphere, helped to retrieve and conserve the craft to the state it appears in today. Liberty Bell 7 is owned by the Cosmosphere, making it the only privately owned American spacecraft. The Cosmosphere is among only four museums worldwide to have a flown set of manned Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo spacecraft.

    *Coffee at the Cosmo topics and speakers are subject to change.
