Florida Today: Remembering Apollo
Throughout this year Florida Today will honor the 40th anniversary of the first moon landing in 1969. We're planning a special event in May where people who worked for the program, shared in its success, were space fans and even children of folks from that era, can share stories, photographs and mementos. We would like to record your stories and photograph your mementos for a special web site featuring this unique collection of memories for everyone to view, discuss, reminisce and research.

Our special event, Remembering Apollo, will be held at the BCC Planetarium on May 9, 2009. At this event we'll have space-program veterans and memorabilia experts on hand to look at your items and talk with you about them. We also will photograph your mementos and may even interview you on video.

At the end of the registration period we'll contact you via email to confirm your appointment time at our May 9th event. We may even contact you for a special on-camera interview with our reporters.

Some Apollo-era items of interest we are looking for include:

  • Photos from the era: Of yourself, hotels, night spots, the beach, launch days, space work or daily life
  • Autographs, menus, souvenirs, postcards, tourist memorabilia
  • Movies: 8mm home movies from the era, or video copies of those films
  • Official memos, letters, photographs, pieces/parts of equipment
  • Any other Apollo-related items you think would be interesting.
Thank you for sharing your memories of the Apollo era and the Apollo 11 moon launch with us. Please answer a few questions to get us started.
