Robert PearlmanAFP reports on the Jan. 28 grand opening of "NASA - A Human Adventure" at the Technical Museum in Stockholm, Sweden.
"We felt it was wise to launch here. There is not (often) this kind of exhibit in Europe," Don Bies, the curator and designer of "NASA - a human adventure," said, explaining all the material came from diverse private collections in the United States.

Among these, a two-tonne engine, a parachute that was used in the return to earth of the Apollo 17 mission, rocket replicas, shuttle models and a docking device that actually helped men land on the moon...

The exhibit explores such technical and scientific marvels of space travel, but also concentrates on the historical and human aspect of space missions, presenting a slew of space suits, space food rations, and other items of the day-to-day life of astronauts.
