More about Back to Space

We are on the cusp of losing the incredible men on the Apollo missions. In fact, only four of the twelve men who walked on the moon are still with us. These men inspired a generation by leaving earth to accomplish the impossible, landing on the moon. Dust has settled on this unbelievable story. Those legends, who were once on the front on Time magazine, now live in anonymity. As time marches on, we are losing out on the unbelievable opportunity to show the nation what American accomplished. We must not lose our technological edge. The time is NOW to preserve the Apollo legacy and reinvigorate a new interest in the Apollo program as well as STEM. Let’s bring STEM and the Apollo back into pop culture, let’s bring them Back to Space…
