Apollo 11 Moon Landing 50th Anniversary | 1969
Join in commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the epic Apollo 11 lunar landing mission, the first time humans walked on the Moon in the entire history of mankind, on July 20th from 10 am to 5 pm.
The USS Hornet flawlessly recovered these first moon walkers and their precious load of moon rocks from the Pacific Ocean with President Richard Nixon on board and 500 million TV viewers watching around the world.
The celebration will also frame the Apollo mission within its time as we explore the past, present, and future of space exploration programs planned by NASA and private commercial space companies. Splashdown 50 offers visitors an exciting opportunity to learn about the past and how it leads into the next generation of space exploration.
