NASA Events Celebrating Apollo’s 50th Anniversary


NASA Events Celebrating Apollo’s 50th Anniversary

On July 19, 1 p.m. NASA will broadcast live from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, the historic, newly-restored Apollo mission control room at Johnson Space Center in Houston and the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. They will also be at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington, with a special guest host. They will look in live on Neil Armstrong’s hometown of Wapakoneta, Ohio, see the Apollo 11 command module on display in Seattle, and see slices of Americana at other anniversary celebrations around the country.

NASA will tell the story of how they got there, and how they will get there again, hearing directly from Apollo astronauts alongside current and future astronauts, scientists, engineers, and others sharing some untold stories, quirky facts, and personal reflections about journeying to the lunar surface. Watch it on the NASA Live page.

Apollo 11 moon landing 50th anniversary flight, Space Florida Launch and Landing Facility 

Conjuring the curiosity of moon-bound astronauts in the past, the specialized anniversary flight will demonstrate the feeling of exploring the moon’s surface by recreating lunar gravity and allowing riders to float with the ease of carrying one-sixth their normal body weight.

Late-Night Moon Landing Celebration, Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, Washington, DC

We will celebrate the exact moment the first steps were taken on the Moon with an evening of activities until 2:00 AM.

NASA has been discussing concepts for human lunar exploration since the Apollo flights ended. In this 1995 artist’s concept, a lunar mining operation harvests oxygen from the lunar soil in Mare Serenatatis, a few kilometers from the Apollo 17 landing site.
