RELEASE: 04-233


Apollo 11 Commander Neil Armstrong, who 35 years ago became the first human to set foot on another world, hosts a new NASA video presentation on the Vision for Space Exploration. The Vision is a bold initiative to explore the universe, and eventually send humans back to the moon, on to Mars and beyond.

The new exploration objectives were outlined by President George W. Bush in January during a historic address at NASA Headquarters in Washington.

"I appreciate Neil's willingness to help us engage the public and share the merits of this important exploration initiative," said NASA Administrator Sean O'Keefe. "NASA has a clear direction for the future of exploration and we believe Neil's efforts will help us generate the excitement and commitment vital to the vision's success," he added.

The videotape titled, "Explore: Earth, Moon, Mars and Beyond," will be among the video presentations used by the agency's astronauts, engineers, scientists and managers in speaking engagements across the country. The new videotape also will be shown on NASA Television and integrated as part of a larger interactive multimedia experience on:

Armstrong and Apollo 11 Lunar Module pilot Buzz Aldrin walked on the lunar surface in the Sea of Tranquility July 20, 1969, while Command Module pilot Michael Collins orbited overhead.

The video presentation and information about the new Vision for Exploration is available on the Internet at:
