See the World
July 16, 2019, marked the milestone fiftieth anniversary of NASA’s Apollo 11 launch, the iconic mission that transported Commander Neil Armstrong, Command Module Pilot Michael Collins, and Lunar Module Pilot Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin to the moon. The historic endeavor secured America’s place as a technological world leader—not to mention the new front-runner in the Space Race. An estimated 20 percent of the world’s population watched on July 20, 1969, as Armstrong and Aldrin stepped foot where no man had gone before. This year, the US celebrated with hundreds of events, parties, exhibits, documentaries, and more commemorating this incredible feat of human ingenuity.
