• eSpotlight - 50th Anniversary of the First Moon LandingApollo 11 insignia

    Saturday, July 20, is the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11's moon landing, when Neil Armstrong uttered those now famous words "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." I've always been fascinated by NASA's early space program that aimed to fulfill President John F. Kennedy's goal of "landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth" by the end of the 1960s. If you've always wanted to learn more about this fascinating time in US history, we've got you covered with plenty of online resources.
