Forty years ago today, Rusty Schweickart was busy training in the Lunar Module Simulator at KSC in preparation for Apollo 9. Together with Jim McDivitt and Dave Scott he would perform the first manned test of the LM in earth orbit.

There were two, one at the Manned Spacecraft Center and one at the Cape.

Today, one is at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center and the other is at the Cradle of Aviation.

I don't know which is which (i.e., whether the one at the USSRC was previously at MSC or KSC).
