Host Sean Mobley brings us part one of an all-new mini-series featuring The Museum of Flight’s most extreme artifacts. In this series you will uncover the smallest, largest, oldest and youngest objects in our collection. Join us for a journey of wonderment and surprise as we discuss some of our most unique artifacts!

In today’s episode we will reveal the smallest item in our collection, so small that we don’t have a proper way to display it! Hear from our collections team, NASA Astronaut Dottie Metcalf-Lindenburger and Exhibit Developer Geoff Nunn as they discuss the incredible story behind this little piece of history and its journey to space with some of the world’s most prolific astronauts!
