We Came in Peace: 50 Years on the Moon

We Came in Peace: 50 Years on the Moon

On July 20th, 1969, in full view of earthlings back home, an American named Neil Armstrong became the first human being to leave a footprint on another celestial body, our moon.  Armstrong, together with his crewmates Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin on the moon and Michael Collins orbiting above, united humanity and made history. This presentation examines that history: the people, the air and space crafts, the competition, the politics, and the tragedies surrounding the American moon landings as well as the men, women, and machines that made it possible. Presented by Eric Mease.    Audience: Adults and youth in 4th grade and above.

This program is funded by the Delaware Humanities.

This program will be conducted via Zoom.  Registration is required with an email address.  Participants will receive instructions for joining the meeting via email ONE HOUR before it is scheduled.
