The city is remembering the role it played 50 years ago when man first stepped on another celestial body.
There are events around Houston honoring the 50th anniversary of the Neil Armstrong’s first lunar walk and contribution to humanity made possible by the astronauts of Apollo 11 and the brilliants mind at NASA.
The biggest will be at Space Center Houston with an all day celebration. You will have to park at the Challenger Columbia Stadium and will be shuttled over. People with a disabled placard will be given access to the center.
Tonight at 8 there will be a concert featuring Walk the Moon and Phillip Phillips and a live interactive countdown to 9:56, the precise moment when Armstrong descended from the ladder of the landing module.
Discovery Green also has music and a variety of activities from 6 to 10 tonight.
