Honoring Apollo 7 | Apollo Program 50th Anniversary CelebrationsOct 11, 2018 Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex
Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is kicking off the Apollo Program’s 50th anniversary celebrations starting October 11 with Apollo 7. Each Apollo mission launched from here, Kennedy Space Center, and the visitor complex is celebrating this milestone era in NASA history. We will honor the 50th anniversary of each mission by handing out an Apollo Mission Commemorative Card set to guests visiting on each of the historic launch dates. Each pack will contain a minimum of five cards depending on the mission.
The first in the series begins with Apollo 7 on October 11. Upon arrival, please visit Information or Guest Services to pick up your card set. While visiting, be sure to take the Kennedy Space Center Bus Tour to the Apollo/Saturn V Center and learn about the race to the Moon.
Start your collection while supplies lasts! Please note that daily admission is required to receive this commemorative gift.
