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! Call (520) 398-2252 to make your reservation. $10.00 fee includes admission to tour the Park.
