From the '60s to today, UNC continues growing its relationship with NASA


Before Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin left their footprints in lunar dust, UNC left its footprint on early space exploration by training the Apollo 11 team at the Morehead Planetarium. From providing advanced research, education, outreach and experts that helped missions directly, UNC has been involved with NASA since the U.S. first decided to send people into space.
