It was 50 years ago this summer that the historic journey of Apollo 11 took the first humans to the surface of another world.
We will celebrate this event with a talk from Graham Bryant, who is Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society and President of the Hampshire Astronomical Group.

Graham will look at the Earth’s satellite, the Moon, and describe why the USA decided to reach the Moon in the 1960s. He will also look at NASA’s build-up to the historic Apollo 11 landing and those that followed.
Graham will draw upon NASA archival images to illustrate this talk.
