"From 2018 through 2022, NASA is marking a series of important milestones – the 60th anniversary of the agency’s founding by Congress in 1958, and the 50th anniversary of the Apollo missions that put a dozen Americans on the Moon between July 1969 and December 1972. Celebrations already are under way. Some are complete, some are scheduled in the coming months, and some are still being planned." - www.nasa.gov
As I was pulling together titles for a new release post, I realized that there were several that celebrated space exploration. So, this month's new release post is in honor of NASA's 60 years and counting. Here are some upcoming releases that may inspire you to dream of space travel.
