This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the 1st manned mission to the moon. This manned mission started July 16, 1969 with the landing on the moon occurring July 20. This landing and the excitement behind it led to many huge leaps in technology that we love today like GPS. We continue to work towards another future in space both through NASA and private space programs. The world’s 1st blind astronaut might be alive today.
