CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) - Thousands of model rockets have been launched in Huntsville, Alabama, 50 years after the Apollo 11 crew blasted off for the moon.

Tuesday's launch was done by the U.S. Space and Rocket Center, which is attempting a world record.

Huntsville, known as Rocket City, was the home of the powerful Saturn V rocket that took Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins to the moon.

The simultaneous rocket launch is one of many events planned commemorating the golden anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission.
