New! Space Exploration Themed Children’s Activity Panel


Created for young children’s imaginations and curiosities, this Space1der panel presents three activity areas built around an imaginary flight into space. Currently part of a children’s area at Denver Museum of Nature and Science.

Currently under development, this Gemini Control Panel Simulator looks and operates the same as the actual Gemini XII control panel.


Historic Space Systems designed and fabricated the simulated Undersea Laboratory control console above for Underwater World in San Francisco, California.

These consoles mount illuminated film gauges and real switches in aluminum panels. All switch nomenclature is machine engraved on the panels, just as on real laboratory test equipment.

Common engineering design practice determined the grouping of controls and displays. Standard rack components added authenticity.
