Apollo 11: From Launch to Landing
On July 16, 1969, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins launched from Cape Canaveral on a Saturn V rocket headed for the Moon. Three nights later, they were closing in quickly on Mare Tranquilitatis where they landed on July 20. Join us at Fiske Planetarium fifty years to the eve of this historic landing event when we will celebrate the ambition and engineering feats that made this mission possible. Fiske Director, John Keller will provide an overview of the events leading up to the Apollo 11 landing, with additional perspective provided by his father Warren Keller, who worked on the Saturn V rocket as a testing engineer for MacDonald Douglas during the Apollo era.
