The Story Behind "Apollo"

The Apollo 11 Project represents one of the greatest achievements in history.

To this day, the scale of the program's dedication, teamwork, and engineering genius is staggering. The project ran on tight timeframe and under intense pressure. Thanks to the persistence and discernment of the mathematicians, engineers, physicists, and programmers behind this project, we were the first to land astronauts on the moon and bring them safely home.

While their efforts were largely behind the scenes, this team of scientists and big dreamers achieved so much more than their original goals. 
As a result of the Apollo programs, we discovered technologies such as: 
- CAT scanners
- computer microchips
- water filtration
- solar panels
- heart monitors
- home insulation

The teams behind Apollo not only achieved their goals, they pioneered the future for the benefit of all humanity.
 
We owe these lesser known heroes our gratitude.

We owe them our present.
 
To honor their efforts and further their legacy, we will be donating the profit of each "Apollo" Spiritile to the National Math and Science Initiative, which is dedicated to advancing STEM education among all American youth.
