In 1969, America did something no country has ever done before….achieving the first ever moon landing. We now celebrate Apollo’s 50th Anniversary this year since that grand historic day!! We not only celebrate this historical inspiration, but also the ones who were involved; the magnificent contributions of NASA Langley and all of the NASA staff and employees.

According to Clayton Turner, Deputy Director at NASA Langley, we now have the opportunity to recreate that excitement again by hoping to achieve landing another man and the first woman on the moon and a possible mission to Mars in the near future.
