Do you remember where you were during the historic Moon landing 50 years ago? Can you recall the emotions that ran through you at that time? Or, perhaps you weren’t born yet but this historical feat has captured your imagination and leaves you dreaming about humankind’s next giant leap?
July 20, 2019 marked the 50th anniversary of the first humans landing on the Moon as part of NASA’s Apollo 11 lunar mission. NISE Network partner museums and science centers all across the country hosted events commemorating the 50th anniversary of the July 20, 1969 Moon landing. The following short video highlights a few of these anniversary events and tries to capture some of the memories and future aspirations from event participants.
