WARNER ROBINS, Ga. — On July 16, 1969 at 9:32 a.m., Apollo 11 launched, taking men to the moon for the first time.
50 years later at 9:32 a.m. on July 16, 2019, kids from Central Georgia will join together to launch their own rockets to celebrate.
The Museum of Aviation is hosting kids from summer camps to launch stomp rockets. It is part of the US Space and Rocket Center's mission to have the largest global rocket launch.
Clare Swinford, the museum's National STEM Academy's NASA Educator, said they want to make the 50th anniversary special.
"It's just such a momentous occasion 50 years ago and what we accomplished," Swinford said.
The museum is also screening Georgia Public Broadcasting's documentary "Chasing the Moon" at 1 p.m. on Tuesday and Saturday.
On Saturday, the anniversary of the landing, the museum will have a ham radio display, lunar and meteorite samples, and rovers kids can drive on giant moon and Mars maps.
Swinford said they are doing it all for the kids.
"They are our future to continue this space exploration, and to understand how it started just makes it that much more exciting," she said.
Marques Adams said he is excited to bring his 4-year-old son Maxton to show him how cool space exploration is.
"I'm definitely interested in him taking the baton and just taking it and running with it like Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong. I just want him to be that next generation," Adams said.
The Museum of Aviation is not the only place in Central Georgia celebrating the moon landing.
Georgia College and State University will host an event from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Saturday.
They will have NASA panels and memorabilia, solar telescopes, a crater making station, and movies running every hour in the Herty Planetarium.
