We Chose to Go the Moon…. 50 Years On
July 16 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
TIME Magazine photographer David Burnett presents his historic images of the thousands of Americans who witnessed the launch of Apollo 11.
Burnett was 22 years old when he moved to Miami in early 1969. His pictures of two Apollo launches (Apollo 10 and 11), and a story on the Apollo engineers behind the program, were barely used in the magazine. Today, five decades later, his images of the thousands of Americans who came to witness the launch of Apollo 11 convey a vivid and very personal sense of what the country looked like as the astronauts aimed for the Moon.
