NASA launched Apollo 11 to the moon 50 years ago on July 16, 1969, and four days later – on July 20 – man set foot on the moon for the very first time. Several activities are planned to commemorate the occasion, including a countdown of the actual events and moments that led up to the landing on the moon. Relive memories of the historic event, hear about behind-the-scenes preparations, and marvel at the evolution of technology in a relatively short period of time.

Guests of this event will watch a newly released documentary focusing on the 1969 Apollo 11 mission -- the first spaceflight to land men on the moon. Afterwards, they will hear a behind-the-scenes account from one of the NASA scientists who helped make the dream of space travel a reality. Retired physicist F. Don Cooper will share his experiences creating the technology that helped launch Apollo 11.
