Fifty years ago, July 16, 1969, three men launched from Kennedy Space Center, FL to fulfill a mission set out by President John F. Kennedy – land men on the moon and return them back safely. Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong, and Michael Collins did just that, and for that moment, the world united and celebrated this incredible feat.
Buzz Aldrin Ventures LLC is happy to present The Road to Apollo 50th website offering over the next year, official anniversary gatherings, celebrations, dinners, galas, and special projects to honor and commemorate this great accomplishment. The celebration schedule will be posted soon! Partial proceeds will benefit Buzz Aldrin’s nonprofit, Human SpaceFlight Institute, a nonprofit organization, which focuses on utilizing a collaborative approach to advancing human spaceflight beyond low Earth orbit.
