What? No Indiana stops?
(Grissom was from Indiana.)
Any idea what organization is sponsoring the trip?

The Liberty Bell 7 tour pretty much started in Indiana. It was at the
Children's Museum in Indianapolis for about 3 months at the end of
last year.

Unfortunately, the final resting place of Grissom's capsule appears to
be the Kansas Cosmosphere. Personally I think they should put it on
loan to the Grissom Memorial in Mitchell, Indiana. It would look great
beside the Molly Brown.

well...crap. I guess the exhibition didn't get a lot mention in the Fort
Wayne media. It was probably something which got mentioned on the day the
exhibit opened, and if I happened to be busy that day, I missed it entirely.
