Half a century ago this week, the Apollo 9 crew was first in line for the mission simulators at the Cape and in Houston, with the Apollo 10 and 11 crews not far behind in the training flow. Lunar module pilot Rusty Schweickart prepares to enter the LM simulator in the Flight Crew Training Building at Kennedy Space Center.

Can anyone read what the sign under the simulator's name reads, each word underlined in red? Just curious... Also Rusty is getting the "red carpet" treatment!
