Benner has chosen July 16th as the launch date to commemorate the 42nd anniversary of the Apollo 11 Mission to the Moon, and to honor his father, William Benner Sr., who was an integral part of this historic launch. William Benner Sr. worked on the Mission Control computers at NASA’s Manned Spacecraft Center in Houston—and directly contributed to the success of the Apollo 11 mission as well as Apollo 10 and others.
In response to questions about the new BEYOND software, William Benner Jr. was quoted saying: “The thing that drives me is being able to do everything better and faster as we explore new ways of doing laser shows… I’m excited that as a part of our 25th year anniversary celebration, and as a way to honor my father and the historic Apollo 11 Mission to the moon, we will be launching our new BEYOND software on July 16, 2011.”
