Tomorrow marks the 50th anniversary of the launch of Apollo 11 on July 16, 1969 and , on July 20, the first time humans set foot on the moon. Many TFPers were probably not yet alive , but as one old enough to being transfixed in front of the TV, it was an event I will never forget. It was when, at age eight, I decided to become an aeronautical engineer (not an astronaut). Physics in college was the end of that career before it got off the ground, probably for the best. The National Air and Space Museum is planning week-long events, culminating in a 363-foot Saturn V rocket projected on the east face of the Washington Monument and a special "Apollo 50: Go for the Moon" show. On July 16, 17, and 18 the projection will be live from 9:30 pm to 11:30 pm. It all builds up to July 19 and 20, when we will present "Apollo 50: Go for the Moon," a 17-minute show that will combine full-motion projection mapping artwork and archival footage to recreate the launch of Apollo 11 and tell the story of the first Moon landing. The show will unfold on the face of the Washington Monument and supporting screens, including a 40-foot-wide recreation of the famous Kennedy Space Center countdown clock. Apollo 50 I'll be there!
