AIM HIGHER GALA HIGHLIGHTS

The Apollo Missions to the Moon Changed the World

2022 marks the final  50th Anniversaries of the Apollo Missions to the Moon

In 1962, US President John F. Kennedy made the commitment to land a man on the Moon and bring him home safely to the Earth. Only 8½ years later, on July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to set foot on another celestial body in our heavens. The whole world watched and listened in. Following those missions humans landed on the Moon five more times until 1972 when Apollo 16 and Apollo 17 landed for the last time.

That time frame is arguably the ONLY time in recorded human history the world stopped, waited in anticipation and celebrated an achievement for all of humanity. It represented hope for what is possible by achieving “the impossible.” It spurred on innovation and new tech that we all benefit from every day .More than the technology, it gave us hope for  what humans can do when they come together for a common goal.

 

It also inspired humans to start Earth Day as a mission to take better care of our planet.

Since then our presence in space has expanded to include a more diverse   and inclusive representation of humans in space that reflects like on Earth.
