NASA’s Giant Leaps: Past and Future – another look. Join us for the #Apollo50th celebrations

Fifty years ago, humans took their first steps on the Moon and the world watched as we made history. Starting at 1 p.m. EDT, (6pm BST) you can watch us salute our #Apollo50th heroes and look forward to our next giant leap for future #Artemis missions to the Moon and Mars.

Commander Neil Armstrong and lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin, landed the Apollo Lunar Module Eagle on July 20, 1969, at 20:17 UTC. Both American astronauts.

Pilot Michael Collins flew the command module Columbia alone in lunar orbit while they were on the Moon’s surface. Armstrong and Aldrin spent 21 hours 31 minutes on the lunar surface at a site named Tranquility Base before lifting off to rejoin Columbia in lunar orbit.

There are exciting times ahead.  Next giant leap will be another mission to the moon in 2024.  Plans are well in advance with the support of President Donald Trump.
