Visit the Garland Landmark Museum to learn about products and systems supplied by government contracting firms in Garland to support the Apollo 11 project and beyond to Garland’s involvement in the space industry today.
50 years ago this July, the ears and eyes of Americans and citizens throughout the world were finely tunes to their radio and television sets as they occupied ringside seats in one of man’s greatest adventures: the Apollo 11 moon landing. As the three-man crew of American Astronauts approached the moon and prepared for the first lunar walk by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, thousands of people in the Garland area had a particular keen interest in the spectacle.
They are the scientists, engineers, production workers and other employees of the large numbers of Garland-area industries who contributed to the historic Apollo 11 mission.
