Event description
Lift Off! Vero Beach honors the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landing with this special event.

About this Event

Join us to celebrate and commemorate the outstanding achievements of the Apollo program. Half a century after landing man on the moon, the Apollo program remains the single greatest initiative in peacetime the world has ever known. Behind every astronaut and figurehead there was Apollo's massive workforce: a team of over 400,000 men and women. Who were these men and women who devoted themselves to Apollo, and overcame every challenge to insure its success?

When We Were Apollo is a feature-length documentary offering an intimate and personal look at Apollo through the lives and experiences of some of its most inspiring behind-the-scenes figures: engineers, technicians, builders and contractors who spent the better part of a decade working to get us to the moon and back.

Enjoy a private screening of When We Were Apollo, followed by a Q&A with some of the greatest minds behind the Apollo program.
