APOLLO 11:
MISSION OF THE MILLENNIUM

Friday 19 July from 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm
No admission fee. For ages fourteen and older.

Tom Northrop of BREC will present 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.
