"The Apollo 11 mission is a landmark event of the 20th century; its 50th anniversary provides us with the perfect time not only to revisit that event with its full historical and scientific context but also to take an engaging and provocative look into what comes next in humanity’s insuperable quest to explore other worlds. For 250 years ago, Britannica has provided factual information to broaden our appreciation and understanding of the world around us. The launch of the Space Next 50 website marks the beginning of Britannica’s yearlong journey to examine our past, present, and future in space. More content will be added, and we invite readers to participate and be part of it."
