Apollo 11 50th Anniversary celebrates groundbreaking mission


Saturday marks the 50th anniversary of man’s first step on the Moon.

One of the biggest legacies the Apollo 11 mission has left behind is achieving what many thought was impossible at the time. Which begs the question, what is next?

NASA says it starts with going back to the Moon. They hope to do so by 2024 to bring the first woman and the next man to the surface of the moon.

It’s a mission they hope to use as a conceptual launching pad to the next big frontier – Mars.
