At 20:17 on the 20th July 1969 Apollo 11 landed on the Moon. Six hours later Neil Armstrong became the first human being to set foot upon another world when he descended the ladder and made contact with the lunar surface. Sadly Neil is no longer with us but Charlie Duke, CAPCOM on that famous mission, is.
Last year Charlie kindly autographed two of our Yearone Space Flip Flops. To commemorate the Fiftieth Anniversary of Apollo 11’s momentous achievement, with help from our friends at European Astrotech, we are sending those flip flops back into space. Join us and be part of the ‘countdown’ to that celebratory launch.
Note: Charlie, Charles Moss Duke Jr., became the tenth and youngest person to walk on the Moon as Command Pilot of Apollo 16.
