NASA has been in overdrive for several weeks to mark the anniversary, with exhibits and events nationwide but most notably at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida and the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas.

Flanked by Buzz Aldrin, Mike Collins and the family of mission commander Neil Armstrong in the Oval Office, Trump was briefed on his administration's plans to send astronauts back to the moon and onto Mars, as well as advances in commercial spaceflight and the reusability of space systems. All three men were born in 1930.

The 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing is this weekend, and NASA has a whole lineup of awesome programming ready for all of us.

Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the moon, accompanied Pence to Kennedy Space Center and showed him the pad where he began that momentous journey 50 years ago.

Collins, 88, has remained the more active of the surviving Apollo veterans, and frequently shares lyrical recollections of the mission.

But in Armstrong's hometown, Wapakoneta, Ohio, a smaller-scale event went ahead as local athletes competed in "Run to the Moon" races.

As magnificent as that view was, it was "nothing compared to this other window out there", Collins continued.

"I said to Mission control, 'Hey, Houston, I've got the world in my window'". NASA would love to reignite the drive that led to use putting a man on the Moon in the first place, so we'll have to see how much of that magic the event can conjure up.

It was a resounding achievement not just from a technical perspective but also diplomatic, as the two superpowers jostled for global prestige in the Cold War.

But the deadlines -- 2024 and 2033 respectively -- appear unrealistic and have caused turbulence within the space agency.
