Wednesday evening marked the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission launching on its mission to the moon. The Apollo missions helped blaze a path for human exploration to the moon and today we are extending that path to near-Earth asteroids, Mars and beyond. Meanwhile, submissions are pouring in for Apollo astronaut Buzz Aldrin’s social media campaign. Aldrin asked the public to send in descriptions or videos of what they were doing 45 years ago when the mission launched. (Image Credit: NASA)
