Days after blasting off, the historic flight of Apollo 11 ended with a safe landing back on Earth. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., take part in our egg-drop landing challenge where you try to land an egg safely into a pool of water by designing your own parachute and capsule. Plus, at 1 p.m. in the Explore More Stuff Lab, take part in a virtual chat with a NASA staff member about the initiatives NASA has planned for the future, including the mission to Mars.
