It was developed to defend the country against a large-scale nuclear attack by utilizing space-based missiles.

This exhibition will feature original items from the SDI, such as the Command Launch Equipment Console. There will also be props, costumes, and other items from the Star Wars franchise. Both phenomenons transformed our country – both in culture and national security. Don’t miss this unique exhibition!
