It's been 50 years since man first landed on the moon. And part of the technology that made that landing possible was "Made in Germany."
Space fans can learn all about the moon, Mars and NASA at a three-day event in the US capital. Whether you want to know about satellite imaging or be run over by a Mars rover — it's all there!
In 1969, Neil Armstrong became the first human to walk on the moon. Those first steps were preceded by a fast-paced technological race between the Soviet Union and the USA. Here's how it all started.
The moon landing in 1969 would not have been possible without this German rocket pioneer. In his past, however, von Braun had built a "miracle weapon" for Hitler's Germany that led to thousands of deaths.
The '69 moon landing was science-free. Until someone said, "they'd better have something to do." So they studied rocks.
