Presentation: Apollo 8 Mission to the Moon by Bob Zimmerman
December 10, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$10
Robert Zimmerman, an award-winning science journalist and historian, tells the hidden story behind the Apollo 8 mission, describing its background and how this one mission changed both American and world history forever. It was Christmas Eve, 1968, and the astronauts of Apollo 8 — Commander Frank Borman, Jim Lovell, and Bill Anders — were participants in a mission that took them faster (24,000 mph) and farther from the Earth (240,000 miles) than any human had ever traveled. More importantly, Apollo 8 was the mission that broke humanity’s absolute bond to the Earth, the first mission to leave the Earth’s orbit and go to another world. Don’t miss this fascinating talk!
