Apollo 11 50th Anniversary - We have lift off!

"LIFT-OFF, we have lift-off..." 50 years ago today, America began the greatest journey known to man - the Apollo 11 mission to the moon. American Light & Power celebrates this historic trip and remembers the words from President John F Kennedy that inspired our nation to make this happen:

“We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win."

Many exciting ways to celebrate this historic event in and around Houston.  Visit Space City Houston to learn more.

WATCH the video from July 16, 1969 of this historic moment.
