July 20, 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 – the first time humans walked on the Moon.

NASA Explorers: Apollo is a commemorative audio series that examines the Moon’s cultural and scientific influence over the last half-century, while also peering into the future of planetary exploration.

Listeners will meet a Moon detective, scientists who study space rocks and people from all over the world whose lives have been shaped by the epic adventures of the Apollo program.

As a part of this series, NASA invites you to contribute to an oral history project celebrating giant leaps and exploration of all kinds.

You can help NASA tell the Apollo story by sharing your own perspective on lunar exploration, or by interviewing a loved one who lived during the Apollo era.

NASA will select some submissions to feature in the audio series, on its website and/or social media.
