July 12, 2019  Moon Tree Garden Opening at Apollo/Saturn V Center
10 a.m.

Almost 50 years ago, when Apollo 14 Astronaut Stuart Roosa carried seeds from loblolly pine, sycamore, sweet gum, redwood, and Douglas fir trees around the Moon as part of a joint U.S. Forest Service/NASA project, his dream was to have the seeds germinated on his return and planted throughout the United States. Now known as "Moon Trees" and in their second generation, they have been planted around the world. On July 12th, 12 of the trees will be unveiled at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex as part of the Apollo 50 celebrations. The Moon Tree Garden at the Apollo/Saturn V Center will include the 12 trees, each of which represents a crewed Apollo mission to the Moon. The trees will form a crescent around a stunning bronze statue honoring the legendary crewmembers of Apollo 11: Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins. The seven-foot-tall statue, set upon a four-foot-tall concrete base, is a gift to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex from Rocket Mortgage.  The event is included with daily admission, and tickets can be purchased here

Duran Duran to Rock the Rocket Garden at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex with Concert and Choreographed Drone Light Show


Spectacular Late-Night Show Highlights Apollo 50th Celebrations on the Space Coast

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. (June 28, 2019) – Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex and the Aldrin Family Foundation today announced that the iconic British band Duran Duran will play a unique show amidst the spectacular Rocket Garden with an out-of-this-world drone performance by Studio Drift. Tickets are now on sale at KennedySpaceCenter.com for the show which will immediately follow the sold-out Apollo 50th Gala on July 16, 2019.

Speaking from Europe, where the band is currently on tour, keyboardist and Duran Duran co-founder Nick Rhodes said, “In July 1969 an entire generation, around the world, was ‘Moonstruck'. I was one of those kids watching in complete amazement on TV as the Lunar Module touched down, and Neil Armstrong took his first steps on the Moon. I remember rushing outside immediately after the broadcast to just stare up into the night sky. It was surreal and awe inspiring - science fiction unfolding before us. I tried to picture what it must be like for the astronauts who were up there – but it was all so utterly unimaginable. We’d simply never witnessed anything like it before. It felt like a new beginning. Everything was encapsulated in that one moment, nothing was ever going to be the same again. It represented hope, belief and opportunity - opening our minds to what mankind was capable of achieving.”
