Apollo 11 in the Resource Connection

July 12, 2009

July 20th marks the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. The Smithsonian, a Resource Connection partner, has an excellent multimedia resource, Apollo 11: Walking on the Moon,  that provides an opportunity for viewers to “relive the first mission.” Filled with audio clips from the astronauts who made the trip and original photographs from the era, this presentation allows the user to explore the Apollo 11 firsthand and get a taste of what it must have been like to live during the time of the great “Space Race.”
