NASA is hosting or partnering with others on a number of Apollo 11 50th anniversary events.

On July 16, Apollo 11 astronauts Mike Collins and Buzz Aldrin will take part in an event at Launch Complex 39A, from which they launched, along with the late Neil Armstrong, on their historic mission to the Moon exactly 50 years earlier.  NASA describes the event as follows:

Apollo 11 astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins will reunite at the historic launch pad where Apollo 11 began its mission 50 years ago for a question-and-answer session with Kennedy Center Director Bob Cabana, beginning at 9:15 a.m. EDT, followed by a visit the Launch Control Center and Firing Room 1 to connect with Apollo-era launch controllers and those who will launch the Artemis missions that are part of America’s Moon to Mars approach for human space exploration.

This event will air live on NASA Television and the agency’s website.
