The National Air and Space Museum has rolled out a new section of their website celebrating the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11. Features include:
  • Apollo 11 Objects in the National Collection
    You can help! A selection of Apollo 11 objects and their current descriptions are viewable on this website. If you have personal experience with the objects, know or have heard something credible about them, or have a correction or suggestion you are willing to share, please let us know! We invite your comments and look forward to hearing from you.
  • Iconic Images from Apollo 11
    Museum staff picked 11 iconic images from the Apollo 11 mission. What do these images mean to you? Which ones do you think are the greatest images from the mission? Tell us by leaving a comment or vote for your favorite.
  • Videos/Podcasts
  • Interactive Timeline
  • Share Your Story
    Forty years later, we celebrate this remarkable event and ask you to share your thoughts with us. Were you there in 1969, perhaps watching the televised first steps with your family? If you were you born after 1969 (or too young to remember), how do you feel about the first Moon landing? Do you think humans should return to the Moon and why?
Plus a Twitter feed, Relive Apollo 11 highlighting mission events 40 years later.

I was just contacted by the Smithsonian. The Air and Space Museum is starting a history website for all Apollo workers who were on the ground and worked for the contractors. I am so happy. Our stories will be preserved.
I'm an editor for Air & Space magazine at the Smithsonian.

I'd like to alert you to a feature story we just posted on our website. It has to do with the sacrifices made (long hours, etc.) by those who worked on the Apollo program in the mid-1960s. The story can be read here.

You'll see that we invite comments from Apollo veterans, which is why I'm contacting you in the hope that you might help us spread the word. I'm not aware of another site on the web where Apollo veterans have told their stories, and I'd very much look forward to reading any submissions.

The story is part of a larger anthology we're posting for the 40th anniversary of the first moon landing.

Oh, my. How wonderful! Apollo workers, please add your story to this!

Well of course there is the NASA Oral History Program.

Hi, Scott! NASA has enough. We are the Apollo workers who worked for the contractors, especially Boeing. NASA wants nothing to do with employees of the contractors. NASA has so many websites that they can choke a horse.

Sara, I wonder if your posts on cS had anything to do with your being contacted?
