It took millions of steps to make one giant leap.

South Carolina ETV, the ETV Endowment of South Carolina and Aiken Technical College invite you to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing with us! Through a series of state-wide events and locally-produced television, radio and digital programs, we will retrace many of the steps, both within South Carolina and throughout the nation, of the space race that led from its earliest beginnings to the monumental achievement of the first lunar landing in 1969.

Join us for a special sneak peek at CHASING THE MOON. The evening begins with a reception and light refreshments, followed by brief remarks by Tedda Howard of the Astronomy Club of Augusta and the screening. Dr. Kent Germany, USC professor of history, will help put the space race in context through his remarks, “We Can Do It All”: JFK, LBJ, and the 1960s.

FREE; reservations required. Space is limited.

Check out all of the latest space programming from SCETV and South Carolina Public Radio!

ABOUT CHASING THE MOON
Chasing the Moon thoroughly re-imagines the race to the moon for a new generation, upending much of the conventional mythology surrounding the effort. The three-part series recasts the Space Age as a fascinating stew of scientific innovation and PR savvy, political calculation and media spectacle, visionary impulses and personal drama. Chasing the Moon airs on SCETV July 8, 9, 10 at 9:00 PM. #ChasingtheMoonPBS.
