Apollo 10 - The Team Who Got Us To The Moon


Apollo 10 - The Team Who Got Us To The Moon

To celebrate the 50th anniversary year of the first Moon landing we're reuniting some of the team behind this historic achievement.

In the 50th anniversary year of the first Moon landing, the National Space Centre, in collaboration with Nick Howes, is reuniting some of the team behind this historic achievement. Twelve humans stood on the lunar surface, but it took many thousands of scientists, engineers, mathematicians, makers, creators and thinkers to get them there.

In a celebration of these achievements, there will be opportunities to meet and discover the amazing stories of:
• Manfred "Dutch" von Ehrenfried
• Gerry Griffin
• Sy Liebergot
• Bill Moon

Culminating in a screening of "Mission Control: The Unsung Heroes of Apollo" in the Sir Patrick Moore Planetarium, this really will be one giant leap for mankind.

Activities include:
• Q&A in the Sir Patrick Moore Planetarium
• Autograph, Photograph and Book Signing
• The Legacy of Apollo
• The Hunt for Snoopy
• Mission Control Brunch
• And More!

Please note:
All elements of this event are exempt from the Annual Pass offer. Tickets must be purchased in advance. No concessions are available. No autographs of photographs are offered without pre-purchased vouchers (will be available in advance or on the day). Autograph, photograph, book signing or Q&A do not include entry to the Centre. Tickets are non-refundable. In case of cancellation of the event the National Space Centre will not be liable for any out of pocket expenses, travel or accommodation. Event is subject to change.
