On July 20, 1969 the first humans touched down on the moon as part of NASA’s Apollo Space Program. Fifty years later, the historic achievement is being celebrated across the nation this week. In the NMSU Library, we set up a display of Apollo-related Government Documents to commemorate the landing.
Since its inception, NASA has distributed a trove of technical reports, scientific papers, histories, maps, photographs, and bibliographies concerning its space programs. Today, the NMSU Library has collected more than 36,800 NASA documents for you to use. If you are interested in the exploration of space, or the science behind it, pay a visit to Government Documents on the first floor of Branson Library.
