Apollo 11 Anniversary Gala with Buzz Aldrin July 23rd

Join Space Share in celebrating the anniversary of Apollo 11's flight to the moon with the mission’s Lunar Module Pilot, Buzz Aldrin! Hosted by the incomparable George Takei, best known for his role as Mr. Sulu in Star Trek: The Original Series and films, and featuring fellow Star Trek alumna Nichelle Nichols (Uhura).

Other guest stars and astronauts will be at this special black-tie event to celebrate the 47th anniversary of Apollo 11’s historic return to earth, and the 50th anniversary of Star Trek in honor and recognition of one of humankind’s greatest achievements: the first time man set foot on the surface of the moon.

  • View NASA's restricted property (such as the launch pads and Vehicle Assembly Building)
  • Enjoy a reception and open bar
  • Receive an exclusive professional photo with specials hosts
  • Dine underneath one of the only remaining Saturn V rockets in the world
  • Enjoy a decadent dessert spread and specialty coffee
  • Explore the award-winning Apollo/Saturn V facility
  • Experience an engaging program with Aldrin and Takei as they share their experiences

Also included will be an Apollo 11 Memorabilia Silent Auction and special raffle, available only to gala attendees. Secure your SPACE today to go boldly where no man has gone before and don’t miss this exclusive affair. Tickets are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Special rates are available for educators, students, and active military.
Event proceeds benefit Buzz Aldrin’s ShareSpace Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to igniting children’s passions for science, technology, engineering, arts, and math by providing educators with interactive and engaging hands-on educational activities.
