SALT LAKE CITY -- The historic moon landing still fascinates and inspires 40 years later. The milestone resonates with young and old alike.
"We could see the Saturn 5 just barely go over the horizon," said Mike Murray, programs manager at the Clark Planetarium.
Forty years later, Murray produces educational shows at the Clark Planetarium, where the most popular exhibits are the lunar and Martian landscapes. Visitors leap and scramble, even moonwalk. Forty years later, the event still captivates.
Sandy resident Stacie Ivory says the event teaches, "There's no end to the limits of what we can do, that anything is possible for humankind."
"It's still fascinating, wonderful. It's sort of surprising we haven't done anything as spectacular since," said Ogden resident David Gossner.
