This panel will discuss mankind's greatest achievement in the history of mankind and that is Apollo 11's moon landing on July 20, 1969. This was the first time that two men had actually landed and walked around doing scientific experiments on another celestial body other than the earth. This July 20 marks the 50th anniversary of this historic event - 600 million people watched it on TV all over the world and crime was nearly non-existence. The panel will cover how significant Apollo 11 was to us scientifically, socially and culturally. It will also cover the mission and its astronauts (one of the Apollo 11 astronauts the panelist met himself) its spacecraft, scientific instruments and experiments, behind the scenes and insights and when  they nearly aborted the landing.

The panelist - a NASA Apollo mission expert - has met 28 astronauts of whom ten were on Apollo missions. He has been a member of the National Space Society for 17 years and spoken on man in space and space exploration topics and events 15 times. Where were you 50 years ago this July 20 when Neil Armstrong said "That's one small step for man and one giant leap for mankind"? Come and celebrate mankind's greatest achievement ever. Presented by Tim Miller.
