50th Anniversary - Apollo 11
On July 20, 1969, the United States of America accomplished a feat of impossibilities by landing the Apollo 11 Lunar Module Eagle on the moon. Florida played a key role in this achievement by serving as the Apollo 11 mission's physical launch pad at the Kennedy Space Center. The Department will be offering a variety of opportunities to recognize and celebrate Florida's role in this historical achievement including space-themed summer reading programs, special moon and space-themed exhibits and educational programming.
