WASHINGTON -- NASA is planning a number of activities and events in
2009 as America nears the 40th anniversary of the first moon landing
on July 20. The events will celebrate the Apollo Program, its
accomplishments, and the benefits to our lives today.

"Celebrate Apollo: Exploring the Moon, Discovering Earth" is an effort
to engage the public and disseminate information about NASA's
historic, current and future missions. Several items have been
developed to aid the celebration, including an Apollo 40th
anniversary logo, calendar of events and Web site.

The site NASA developed specifically for the Apollo 40th anniversary
includes the special anniversary logo, an interactive feature about
"Moon Trees" grown from seeds that flew on the Apollo 14 mission, and
a "First Footprints" toolkit for use throughout the anniversary,
which includes downloadable videos, images and events listings.
NASA's official Apollo 40th anniversary Web site is located at:

NASA's Apollo missions Web site provides easy access to various NASA
resources and multimedia about the Apollo story, the program and the
history of human spaceflight, including gallery of images from the
Apollo program. The Apollo site is online at:

NASA also has developed an interactive Apollo Program feature. On the
anniversary of each Apollo mission, NASA posts a new feature that
allows users to relive each mission with video, photos and a unique
animated comic. The feature can be found at:
