Web Seminar: NSTA Science Update: Apollo 11 – 50 Years Past and Future, July 24, 2019

Web Seminar

Man on the MoonJoin us on Wednesday, July 24, from 8:00 – 9:00 pm Eastern time and celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing on the Moon.

Relive the science, politics and drama that led to the first human landing on another world.  The Mercury and Gemini programs led to the triumphs of Apollo with many challenges and some tragedies along the way.  Even the eventual landing of Apollo 11 was extremely risky. 

But now after Apollo, the Space Shuttle program and the International Space Station, where will the future in space lead us?  We will explore the proposed Lunar Gateway, the next Moon landings in 2024, eventual journeys to the planet Mars, and the hazards associated with long-term space flight.
