Buzz Aldrin on the Moon.

July 20, 2019 marks 50 years to the day when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin made history by becoming the first two human beings to set foot on another celestial body, and the San Diego Air & Space Museum is commemorating the occasion with a special debut of “The Day We Walked On The Moon,” a documentary from the Smithsonian Channel.

Smithsonian Affiliates, including the San Diego Air & Space Museum, are the only organizations which have been invited to share “The Day We Walked On The Moon” with their communities.
