NASA: Apollo 50th

On July 20, 1969, humans walked on the moon for the very first time. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of this historic event, NASA has created this website. Upon their arrival, visitors are greeted with an audio clip of the moment that the Apollo 11 mission successfully landed on the lunar surface. From the home page, there are prominent links to collections of both archival and retrospective videos, images, and audio recordings covering multiple Apollo missions, some of which can also be downloaded. Those interested in learning more about the famous Apollo missions and the context surrounding them should check out the menu along the top of the page. There, readers will find stories and photographs about the events that came before the Apollo missions, including NASA's Project Mercury and Project Gemini, as well as abundant information about all 17 of the Apollo missions and what we learned from them. Other points of interest include a map of all the museums on Earth where visitors can see moon rocks, a collection of downloadable posters and other resources, and a link to NASA's ongoing oral history project where readers can share their memories of the moon landing.
