On July 20, 2019, the world celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing. Some four thousand IBMers were involved in the Apollo program: pioneering the technologies; building the computers; writing the software programs that launched the missions and guided them safely back to Earth, and inventing the miniaturized circuity that converted a mainframe the size of a refrigerator into something the size of a suitcase. Today, IBMers continue to advance new frontiers in areas such as Quantum computing and AI. In 2018, IBM helped launch the first AI-powered astronaut assistant, CIMON, to the International Space Station.
