Event description
Learn from space pioneers to determine how hard it was to get to the moon and the obstacles we face in getting back there today.

About this Event

This three-program presentation, appropriate for all ages, includes CAPCOM GO!, Back to the Moon for Good, and Seasonal Stargazing.

CAPCOM GO! revisits that moment from July 20th, 1969, when 600 million people around the world gathered to witness a historic moment of human achievement broadcast live from the Moon. It was on this day that the world celebrated as astronauts took their first steps on the Moon. But few people were aware of just how huge an effort it had taken to get them there. These Apollo 11 astronauts were just 2 of nearly 400,000 people who had worked over ten years towards this goal. Learn how they did it and what it took to put humans on the Moon.

This program will also include Seasonal Star Gazing, a brief overview of the late spring sky, and Back to the Moon for Good. Back to the Moon takes audiences through a successful launch, landing, and lunar surface travel. It highlights the engineering and innovation steps taken by internationally distributed teams who competed to land a spacecraft on the Moon. The show ends with a stunning glimpse of a plausible scenario for our future on the Moon. (For a preview visit https://youtu.be/_G8QWxe6VRw)
