“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

It’s been 50 years since Apollo 11 put astronauts on the surface of the moon. Celebrate the science behind this amazing achievement during One Giant Leap–a special day of activities at MSC on the anniversary itself, July 20th. There will be a lecture in the MSC on the trials and tribulations that led to the historic moon landing, a chance to make DIY astronaut tools in The Shed, build a lunar lander, and even see a slice of a moon rock. Plus a special planetarium show, One Small Step, will be showing in the planetarium. MSC staffers created this special show to take an historical look back at what it took to get to the moon and back. One Small Step plays for the month of July.
