Last month, we looked at the origin of the United States space program with the Mercury and Gemini projects. This month continues that theme as we turn our eyes to the Apollo program. July 20, 2019 marks 50 years since we first set foot on the moon, and the Apollo program is what got us there. We’ll look at the variety of motivations, hallmark moments, and setbacks in this story. Beginning at the Apollo 1 fire and ending with Gene Cernan’s final words from the surface of the lunar soil, there is much to take away from this grandest of human adventures.
