In 1969, the world watched Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin as they stepped on the moon.
Millions of viewers rushed to their televisions as the Apollo 11 astronauts ventured in space to walk on the moon for the first time.
Even now, 50 years later, that day remains etched in memories of many.
Saturday's 32-page special section chronicles the 14-year journey from the creation of NASA to the end of the Apollo missions, including the Apollo 11 mission that got us to the moon. This special section is only available through the Texarkana Gazette digital replica edition, however, and is for our subscribers.
Thanks to our digital replica editions, we have special opportunities to offer far more content than print allows us to give to our readers. We're excited to bring you a special, expanded digital version Saturday to celebrate the 50th anniversary of mankind's giant leap.
This Space Race edition is available on iPads and other smart devices, along with our online E-edition.
