Standing tall at 363 feet, the Saturn V rocket was the only vehicle of its time that could accomplish a feat such as landing humans on the Moon. This #Apollo50th, the @AirAndSpace Museum has brought the rocket back to life on the Washington Monument: https://nasa.tumblr.com/post/186352924194/50-years-ago-three-apollo-astronauts-rode-this?linkId=70674920
Fifty years ago, humans took their first steps on the Moon and the world watched as we made history.
On July 19 at 1 p.m. ET, you can watch us salute our #Apollo50th heroes and look forward to our next giant leap for future missions to the Moon and Mars: https://www.nasa.gov/press-release/nasa-adds-events-to-celebration-of-50th-anniversary-of-historic-moon-landing

“There was no second chance. We all knew that.” Margaret Hamilton led the team that developed the building blocks of software engineering — a term that she coined herself — for Apollo guidance.

For the 1st time in half a century, our #Artemis missions will allow us to examine the Moon’s surface up close. We will build on the knowledge from the Apollo missions & learn more about how to keep humans safe in space.

A full-sized, 363-foot Saturn V rocket is projected onto the Washington Monument 50 years to the day after astronauts Armstrong, Collins, and Aldrin launched on Apollo 11, the 1st mission to land astronauts on the Moon, Tuesday, July 16, 2019. #Apollo50th https://www.flickr.com/short_urls.gne?photoset=aHsmFcac7k
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 #Apollo50th: https://nasa.tumblr.com/post/186339556099/we-like-big-rockets-and-we-cannot-lie-saturn-v?linkId=70629316
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: https://www.nasa.gov/ames/lunar-biology-lab #Apollo50th
