Jul 24, 2019 Rocket Garden

After completing the monumental Apollo 11 Moon landing, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins safely splashed back into the Pacific Ocean. As the final anniversary event in the timeline of the mission, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex will host a welcome home celebration exactly 50 years later to the date.

Save the date! More details coming soon.

The three Apollo 11 crew men, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins, await pickup by a helicopter from the USS Hornet, prime recovery ship for the historic Apollo 11 lunar landing mission. The fourth man in the life raft is a United States Navy underwater demolition team swimmer.
