Celebrating the MOON LANDING 20th July 1969

Members of the U3A Astronomy Group

The audience sat mesmerised by the U3A Astronomy Group’s re-telling of the Moon Landing story. It’s that moment from history – 20th July 1969 – that we all think we know so well but this detailed account completely held our attention and inspired the sense of awe many could remember when the Apollo mission was first completed. For example did you know that a woman was the lead software engineer for the Apollo 11 flight? Or that

 

A huge thank you to all the group members for their detailed research and infectious enthusiasm. Their display – not to be missed – is currently at the Library and a printed copy of their presentation will hopefully be available soon.
