Apollo 11’s historical Impact

More than 650 million people watched the first human moon landing and can tell you exactly where they were when Neil Armstrong said those iconic words: “…one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

This week marks the 51st anniversary of the July 20, 1969 Apollo 11 mission that changed the trajectory of space travel forever.

American space exploration has engaged American minds ever since. With our eyes on the next generation of space travel, nothing seems beyond reach.

A new space race has begun, not only to return to the Moon, but to Mars and beyond. At Watch U.S. Fly, we will continue to celebrate where we’ve been and where we’re going next in space exploration.
