(WYTV) – The U.S. Space and Rocket Center is trying to break a world record during the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11’s moon landing.
People around the world are invited to launch a “rocket” as part of the “Global Rocket Launch.”
The goal is to break the record by launching 5,000 model rockets simultaneously at the same time — 9:32 a.m. here — on July 16.
The first moon landing happened on July 20, 1969 during the Apollo 11 mission. Apollo 11 launched from Cape Kennedy at 9:32 a.m. July 16, 1969.
There’s also information on the website about building model rockets.
Those who participate are asked to take a picture and upload to social media with #GlobalRocketLaunch.
