Where were you 35 years ago today? If you're old enough to remember, chances are you were one of the millions watching Neil Armstrong take a giant leap for mankind.
Tuesday marks the 35th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing, an event that unified the country.
Chris Janssen, Wausau West planetarium director, says, “Not only was it an emotional or moral boost for America, I mean, we were first, it was us. Red, white and blue on the moon."
Janssen says he thinks that space exploration is far from over.
"This is the very first time that humans have ventured off of the surface of our planet and I hope it's just a stepping stone to farther places."
Although more then 30 years have passed since NASA's last trip to the moon, President Bush has set a goal of going back there by 2020.
