Watch astronauts reach space on Apollo 11's 50th anniversary 1

The mission is a relatively routine one, but symbolizes how much spaceflight and the US space program have changed in half a century, for better or for worse. In 1969, the US and Russia were the only two countries to have sent people into space — while they’re still dominant, it’s now common for people from other nations to make the journey. The first space station, Russia’s Salyut 1, hadn’t reached orbit 50 years ago, but the present-day ISS has been in service for nearly 21 years. And the use of a Russian Soyuz rocket is emblematic of both greater international cooperation (however tentative it may be) and the gap in US spaceflight capabilities until the Space Launch System is hopefully ready in 2020.

An actual trip to the Moon will have to wait until 2024, when NASA hopes to once again put people on the lunar surface through its Artemis program. The timing isn’t ideal, then. All the same, it’s good to know that humanity isn’t staying on terra firma during such an important historic milestone.
