Topic: 50th Anniversary of the first lunar landing.

Speakers: Ted Stroman and Leigh Cummings

Bio:

Abstract: On October 4th, 1957, the USSR launched the first successful orbital satellite into space. By the end of the 1960s, only 13 years later, the U.S.A. successfully landed 2 men on the Moon. Ted Stroman is an expert on the history of the Apollo program that brought that to be. Leigh Cummings has been trying to keep up with the developments in the effort to return to the Moon by the next decade. We hope to give an entertaining and eye opening picture of where and how we have been to the Moon and where and how we might go on.
