July 20 marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing on the moon, perhaps one of mankind’s greatest achievements. It was a moment on another world that brought this world to a stop as billions of people huddled around televisions to see the first images of man on the moon.
The Press & Dakotan will be marking the anniversary on Saturday, July 20, and we are asking for reader input. What are your memories of the Apollo 11 landing? If you weren’t born then (or were too young to remember it), what are your feelings about this achievement? And with talk now of returning to the moon or exploring Mars, where do we go from here?
Let us know. Email your thoughts to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or mail them to Moon Landing, c/o News Department, Yankton Press & Dakotan, 319 Walnut St., Yankton, SD 57078. Please send your thoughts to us by 5 p.m. Thursday, July 19.
