Join us as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 moon landing with a night of comedy, history and science with the Upright Citizens Brigade Touring Co. featuring Lauren Adams, former NASA astronaut Mike Massimino and NASA’s Noah Petro, deputy project scientist for the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter.

In 1961, President Kennedy announced an audacious goal: launch an American beyond Earth’s orbit, land on the lunar surface, then return to Earth safely–all before the decade’s end. How was this going to be accomplished?

Mike, Noah and the UCB Touring Co. will discuss the science and history behind this outrageous undertaking. The comedy team will then launch into an Apollo 11-inspired improv set, bringing to life what they learned in their conversation about this ambitious endeavor.
