Apollo 11

Astronaut on the moon with US flag

This July, it will be 50 years since the world watched Apollo 11 Commander Neil Armstrong land on the moon and declare it “…one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Since then, only a handful of astronauts have repeated that journey. Join the countdown for a virtual trip to the moon and experience the drama of the day we first walked the moon.

During the Apollo missions of the 1960s, Charles M. Schulz gave NASA permission to use Snoopy on the Agency’s spaceflight safety materials. The “first beagle on the moon” will be featured in this family-friendly show.
