50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing
During the Apollo program of the 1960s and ’70s, NASA sent nine missions to the Moon. Six of them landed astronauts safely on the surface, the only times humans have visited another world.
July 20, 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the first humans landing on the Moon on July 20, 1969 as part of NASA’s Apollo 11 lunar mission.
In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, the Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board working in partnership with the Auglaize County Historical Society, the Armstrong Air and Space Museum and the Ohio History Connection will mount an exhibit honoring Great Ohioan: Neil A. Armstrong. Growing up in Auglaize County, Ohio, Armstrong developed a passion for aviation that would one day carry him to the moon. This exhibit will take a closer look at his early days and will include Apollo Program artifacts, moon rocks and document how the world celebrated this historic achievement.
