Where were you when Neil Armstrong became the first person to set foot on the surface of the Moon?
In this week’s very special edition of Aerotech News and Review, we remember “one giant leap for mankind” – the historic mission of Apollo 11 in July 1969. It is a momentous accomplishment, emblazoned in our collective national consciousness. President John F. Kennedy spoke prophetically when he said, “No single space project in this period will be more impressive to mankind, or more important for the long-range exploration of space … This gives promise of some day providing a means for even more exciting and ambitious exploration of space, perhaps beyond the moon, perhaps to the very end of the solar system itself.” The Apollo missions were accomplishments not just by scientists, engineers and astronauts who made space exploration possible, but of our nation as a whole, as we exercised our collective will to support this program that changed the destiny of humankind. Read our full review – well-remembered highlights as well as in-depth details of the mission – in this week’s issue of Aerotech News.
