Science on a Sphere Spotlight: Moon Landing

Details

Apollo 11 was the space flight that landed two people on the Moon (1969); it was no accident that the first Earth Day (1970) occurred a few months later as views of the whole Earth hanging in space such as the "Earthrise" view of Apollo 11 generated appreciation for humanity's home planet. NASA has continued to capture images from space and created the stunning "Blue Marble" you can see on the Science on a Sphere at NNC. Come learn more about the first moon landings and see Earth as it looks from space.
