On July 16, 2019, the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch to the Moon, astronaut Michael Collins speaks to launch team members from Apollo 11 and the current launch team for Artemis 1 in Firing Room 1 in the Launch Control Center at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
“Today was absolutely incredible! What a huge honor to speak to these gentlemen and ladies, who were here doing this work…it will be a day I never forget,” said Lisa Devries, safety console coordinator for Artemis 1. “As a kid growing up, I never in my wildest dreams would think I would be standing here, today, on this historic day, talking with them—knowing everything they did for our Apollo program and our country, and knowing that it’s us next, and that we’re taking the reins and going to be the next program to go on to the Moon.”
