APOLLO 50TH ANNIVERSARY LECTURES
by BREC Center Supervisor Tom Northrop
HRPO usually doesn’t plan out non-celestial events several years in advance. However, this is a milestone that cannot go unnoticed. It has been over fifty years since training started for the history-making three-man missions that took our great country to the Moon and back.
Our youngest Americans have lived in an era of low-Earth-orbit-only space travel. Will this change soon? Will another country or agency get to the Moon first this time? Will the first woman on the Moon be a citizen of another country?
Please join us for a six-year set of talks from quite possibly the biggest NASA enthusiast BREC has ever had on its payroll. Tom is known for his spinoff technology presentations as well, and has secured several materials samples from the American space program for display here at HRPO.
NOTE: After one month at its current position on the HRPO website, this page will become a permanent section of the Programs box on the left-hand side of the front page. By that time all the Apollo missions listed above will have their own BRAS Forum threads.
