35th Anniversary Of Apollo Moon Landing And NASA Is Looking
The success of the Apollo 11 mission that landed NASA astronauts
Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin on the Moon July 20, 1969,
was a defining moment that opened a new era in human history.
Today, as NASA marks the 35th anniversary of that first lunar
landing, the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville (AL)
celebrates the role it played in the Apollo program. Under the
leadership of its first director, Dr. Wernher von Braun, the
Marshall Center developed the Saturn V rocket that carried our
astronauts to the Moon.
