Today, we’re teaming up with @NatGeo to take you on a behind-the-scene scavenger hunt!

Follow along on @Instagram stories as we search through our archives for rarely seen artifacts from the Apollo 11 Moon Landing. Celebrate : 

Astronaut Drew Morgan is just 3 days away from launching to space for the 1st time! He will spend 9 months on @Space_Station eating space food & performing science experiments. Be sure to follow @AstroDrewMorgan for a behind-the-scenes look at his journey to space!

From prelaunch to liftoff to the lunar landing — it took 4 days for the crew to make it to the Moon from Earth. As we celebrate the anniversary, look at photos & details from humankind’s first journey to step foot on another world:

The odds were in our favor on @Space_Station today

So special to experience a partial lunar eclipse during the historic week of celebrations. Dreaming of the sights we’ll see on future missions.

We choose to go to the Moon!

It was 50 years ago today that lifted off from @NASAKennedy's Launch Pad 39A on a bold mission to land humans on the lunar surface. Discover more about our launch in this @Twitter moment:

On this day 50 years ago, three humans left Earth riding on the most powerful rocket in the world: the Saturn V.

Five decades later, how does it compare to America's next great rocket, the massive @NASA_SLS? Let's find out. Celebrate : 

Is there life on the Moon? No, but 50 years ago we didn’t know the answer to that question. Take a look inside the lab where our researchers tested Apollo 11 Moon samples for signs of life in this historic, never-before-seen footage:
