Journey to the Moon


Today is the 50th anniversary of the first humans landing on the Moon as part of NASA's Apollo 11 lunar mission.  During the Apollo program of the 1960s and '70s, NASA sent nine missions to the Moon. Six of them successfully landed astronauts on the Moon. This will be a special Science on a Sphere show.  Afterward, try your hand at walking on the Moon via immersive experiences on the SOS Explorer kiosk.

Later, at 8:30 p.m. gather in Scott Park for star gazing.  Astronomy experts and telescopes will be available.
