When Apollo 11 landed on the Moon on July 20, 1969, it was the culmination of the work of more than 400,000 engineers, working for almost a decade to solve problems that had never before been imagined.

To commemorate their work and success, Design News is celebrating SPACE WEEK. For this entire week we will present summaries of the day’s activities from the Apollo 11 mission, 50 years ago, along with a series of interesting feature stories by the Design News editorial team.

We hope you will join us in our celebration of one of humankind’s greatest achievements!
