Flying around

in cyberspace The space module perched outside the Franklin Dairy Queen has again resurfaced in the news — at least on folks’ Facebook news feeds. The “space capsule boilerplate” is featured in a piece by Beth Price-Williams, which was posted Saturday on www.onlyinyourstate.com. A 2010 article in The Derrick and The News-Herald said the module was not a “capsule” because it has never been in space. The module is from NASA’s Apollo space program, the same rendition of the three-person module that flew astronauts to the moon. It is made of boilerplate steel and has a hatch bolted shut on one side. The Dairy Queen owner at the time, Kim Rogers, said there was nothing inside the module because it was only used for training exercises.
