WABC-TV's NJ Burkett joined us on Monday for a special upcoming segment about the 50th Anniversary of Apollo. Thank you NJ and photographer Joe Tesauro for joining us. It was a pleasure having you and we look forward to the May 25th segment.

July 20, 1969.

In all of human history, it was one of mankind’s greatest achievements—the first lunar landing.

WABC-TV photographer Joe Tesauro and I were invited to the Cradle of Aviation museum in Garden City, LI where a fascinating new exhibit will commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of Apollo 11, which carried the first astronauts to The Moon.

The museum is home to the most extensive collection of artifacts from the lunar module—the engineering marvel that carried astronauts to The Moon and was designed and constructed by Grumman Aerospace.

Our feature will be broadcast on Saturday, May 25th as part of WABC-TV’s prime time special, Kickoff to a Long Island Summer.

“What we're hoping to do with this spotlight on this one moment in history is to inspire the next generation of kids,” museum president Andy Parton told me.

“50 years ago, young men and women had a dream to go to The Moon, and they did it right here on Long Island.”

"Nobody at Grumman who worked on the LM will ever forget it. Even the 12-and 14-hour weekdays, the frustrating paperwork & the sheer complexity of designing, building & testing the module could not dim our dedication. From the sweeper to the chief engineer, we all knew that we were part of a majestic endeavor, that we were making history happen. Several times I saw work crews in the assembly areas continue with their tasks long after the overtime pay that had been budgeted for them was exhausted. No one cared; the focus was exclusively on getting the job done, and doing it right." - Tom Kelly (Father of Lunar Module) Show your Apollo at 50 pride.

Photos from Sheryl Faye Presents who wowed students with a fun and interactive performance celebrating Sally Ride during #womenshistorymonth. Thank you Sheryl!!!!

Abundant gratitude to Cradle of Aviation Museum where I presented my Sally Ride show to 100 enthusiastic 4th graders in their gorgeous Dome theater. What a fabulous museum in Garden City NY - well worth the visit and for any children interested in Space, they hold a great Summer Space Camp. (I'd like to do that myself!)
I have wanted to work here for years, so I want to send my thanks to Cathy and Jessie, the on site team, for all their help in making me feel so welcome.
Let's all keep reaching for the stars.

“We’d like to give a special thanks to all those Americans who built the spacecraft, who did the construction, design, the tests, and put their heart and all their abilities into the (space)crafts,” Armstrong says. “To those people tonight, we give a special thank-you.” (on way home from moon)

The film cuts to a shot of thousands of technicians assembled in an immense hangar, beaming with pride. At the zenith of his fame, the hero proves his worth by honoring those to whom the glory is truly owed. - Bret Stephens

Those Americans thanked include Long Island's Grumman Engineers and Workers who designed, built and tested the Lunar Module that landed on the moon on July 20, 1969. How will you honor your fellow Long Islanders and celebrate the accomplishments that brought us universal pride?
