As the world celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission to the moon, it sought the expertise of preeminent space policy and history scholar, and Elliott School Professor Emeritus, John M. Logsdon. As founder of the Elliott School’s Space Policy Institute (SPI) and award-winning author of  John F. Kennedy and the Race to the Moon, Logsdon helped moderate the SPI "One giant leap: Space diplomacy past, present and future" event, which featured Apollo 11 astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins. He also offered uniquely qualified commentary and received special mention across a range of media. In addition to extensive US media attention, Logsdon interacted with print, radio or television outlets from Belgium, Brazil, France, Slovakia, Spain and the United Kingdom among other countries.
