I remember this so well most exciting for my family and I. The Saturn V rocket launched this morning 50 years ago. So many celebrations of this momentous event are planned including the projection of the rocket on the Washington Monument starting tonight. For three nights a full size projection will be on the Washington Monument with more celebrations Friday and Saturday nights.
