Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission

It was a moment that enthralled and inspired: humanity’s first steps on another world. It was the realization of centuries of dreams, and the fulfillment of decades of work. It was the courageous small step into a new age.

Join the Smithsonian and the University Libraries in celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission with Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission. Organized by SITES in collaboration with the National Air and Space Museum, and based on a traveling exhibition of the same name, this poster exhibition examines the mission and recognizes the sacrifices and devotion of more than 400,000 people employed in NASA programs who worked through the trials, tragedies and triumphs of the early space program. Featuring seven posters, including a timeline of key events in the early space race, the exhibition will help viewers to look back at this historic mission, and inspire a new generation of scientists, explorers and those who dare to dream. In addition, the exhibit includes related government documents from the University Libraries collection.
