In this morning view of the façade of NASA Goddard's Visitor Center, in the foreground at left is a sycamore Moon Tree, which grew from a seed carried around the Moon by the Apollo 14 Command Module in 1971. Behind the building, the 90-foot-tall Delta B launch vehicle, a type used to orbit satellites in the early 1960s, forms the centerpiece of the rocket garden.

An afternoon view above the rocket garden at NASA Goddard's Visitor Center. The prominent Delta B launch vehicle stands 90-feet tall and was a type used to orbit satellites in the early 1960s. In the foreground, a kinetic sculpture called Orbits Interweave incorporates three polished stainless steel spheres — representing the Sun, Earth, and GOES weather satellites — that move gently in the wind. The exhibit area around it is shaped like a hurricane symbol. Imaged June 13, 2023, looking east-southeast.Credit: NASA/Francis Reddy

At right are Tomahawk and Javelin sounding rockets, with a model of the Apollo Command Module visible behind them. At further right stands a Canadian-designed Black Brandt VIII rocket, whose later relatives are still in use today. Imaged June 13, 2023, looking east.Credit: NASA/Francis Reddy
