Tom Northrop of BREC will present "Apollo 11: Mission of the Millenium" at the Highland Road Park Observatory, 7:30pm on Friday 19 July. This will be an extended highlighting of the trip that three men took—as the rest of the human species watched, waited, hoped and cheered. Assisted by the scientists and engineers and politicians and other supporters (and preceded by other brave astronauts who paved the way), Neil Armstrong, Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin and Michael Collins committed themselves to a goal that accelerated technological progress and elevated the human spirit.

The talk has no admission fee and is aimed at a general adult audience.

Apollo 11 51th Anniversary

Post by Christopher K. »

It happened today fifty-one years ago. The Saturn V that lifted off would help add another to the lost list of noble accomplishments our great country completed. We honor people like Neil Armstrong, "Buzz" Aldrin and Michael Collins. We honor people like them with lectures, memorials, websites, commemorative events, programs, plays, letters, poems, statues and such.
