Photo by Babak Tafreshi @babaktafreshi | The 110-meter-long (363 foot) Saturn V rocket took the Apollo 11 astronauts to space 50 years ago today, on July 16, 1969. Early this morning, in the heart of Washington D.C., that piece of history was relived briefly on the Washington Monument, which is comparable in height to the rocket. The life-size Saturn projection, organized by @airandspacemuseum partnered with @usinterior and 59 Productions, begins tonight and runs through Thursday, July 18, from 9:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. each night. On July 19 and 20, the program continues, with the show «Apollo 50: Go for the Moon» projected on the east face of the Washington Monument and adjacent screens. To date, Saturn V is the tallest and most powerful rocket ever operated, with an immense payload capacity of 150 tons. With my career focused on astronomy and space photography, it was the perfect opportunity to celebrate this exploration milestone. NASA aims to return to the moon in the next decade, as early as 2024, this time leading a coalition of several nations and private companies. #Apollo50th #NASA #washingtondc #goforthemoon
