Apollo 11 Anniversary

On July 16, 1969 at 9:32 a.m. at NASA’s Launch Pad 39A, Apollo 11’s five F1 engines on NASA’s Saturn-V AS-506 rocket ignited to slowly lift three Americans and humankind’s dreams aboard the historic mission to the Moon. In July 2019, the Rocket City will commemorate the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11’s historic journey to the moon and look to the future of space exploration.

This page is collection of all WLRH content (stories, features and events) related to the anniversary. We hope you enjoy this resource!
