Apollo 11 Launch Flashback Event - 50 Years Later

Apollo 11 Launch Flashback Event - 50 Years Later  
Jul 16, 2019 07:30 AM - Jul 16, 2019 10:30 AM Apollo/Saturn V Center  
Relive the historic launch of Apollo 11 at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex!
On July 16, 1969 at 9:32 AM, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins launched aboard a Saturn V rocket toward the Moon. On July 16, 2019, the Apollo 11 Launch Flashback Event will take you through the launch sequence in real time through archival television footage from that day exactly 50 years later. Guests will board buses from the main visitor complex to the Apollo/Saturn V Center. Once there, spend time in the Moon Tree Garden learning about the 12 missions that took humans to the Moon before visiting the Banana Creek Launch Viewing area. Enjoy a catered breakfast and take a look at some vintage cars from the 1960s, including Armstrong’s blue Corvette and a red Corvette signed by 45 astronauts including Armstrong. As the historic launch time approaches, you can take your seat in the bleachers to hear interviews with special Apollo guests. When it is time for the launch* sequence to begin, the jumbo monitor will show real footage from the historic launch, taking you back in time! The event will also include some celebratory gifts for you to take home: a throwback Pepsi® hand fan to keep cool, Apollo 11 commemorative trading cards, a 50th anniversary booklet, exclusive Moon Pie product, an Apollo lanyard and badge, and a collectible pin specific to this flashback launch event. After the “launch,” explore the newly transformed Apollo/Saturn V Center before taking a bus back to the visitor complex to continue your day. A map of the new exhibits can be found in the commemorative booklet provided.
This flashback celebration is a separately ticketed event. The ticket price includes the above and admission to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.   For More Information see www.kennedyspacecenter.com
