    In 1961, President John F. Kennedy set a lofty goal for NASA: "I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the earth." Before the decade concluded, NASA did just that. On July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 landed on the moon carrying two U.S. astronauts, Neil Armstrong and Edwin (Buzz) Aldrin.

    As we kick off the 50th anniversary year, join NASA Solar System Ambassador Dan Hoy to explore the major events, amazing challenges and crafty solutions the scientists at NASA employed to get mankind to the Moon. In this presentation, through the demonstration of models and video and audio clips, you will discover the science, engineering and ingenuity of the Apollo program and get some insight into the milestones we will commemorate this year.
