The Apollo 14 command module “Kitty Hawk” is on display at the Apollo/Saturn V Center at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.

Apollo 14 Mission

Commander Alan Shepard, Command Module Pilot Stuart Roosa, and Lunar Module Pilot Edgar Mitchell launched on their nine-day mission on Sunday, January 31, 1971, at 4:03:02 p.m. EST.

Shepard and Mitchell made their lunar landing in the Grumman Lunar Module LM-8, “Kitty Hawk”, on February 5 in the Fra Mauro formation – originally the target of Apollo 13. During the two walks on the surface, they collected 94.35 pounds (42.80 kg) of Moon rocks and deployed several scientific experiments.

Roosa remained in lunar orbit aboard the Command and Service Module CSM-110 “Antares”, performing scientific experiments and photographing the Moon, including the landing site of the future Apollo 16 mission. He took several hundred seeds on the mission, many of which were germinated on return, resulting in the so-called Moon trees, that were widely distributed in the following years.

After liftoff from the lunar surface and a successful docking, the spacecraft was flown back to Earth where the three astronauts splashed down safely in the Pacific Ocean on February 9.
