Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11
Tuesday, July 16, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm| Free
On July 16th, 1969 three men made history by being the first men to be launched into space and successfully land on the moon. Join NASA Ambassador Chris Thompson and the Mountain View Regional Library as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch. Mountain View patrons will join the history books by being able to touch space rocks just like Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. Lunar and space meteorites and other NASA memorabilia will be on display for patrons to look at and touch. Mr. Thompson will also discuss the history of the Apollo missions and the future of NASA and space exploration.
Chris Thompson is a human resource professional who also shares his love of Astronomy and Space in his role as a NASA Ambassador. Mr. Thompson conducts workshops and lectures to adults and children. He is also the president of the Meteorite Association of Georgia and a member of the International Meteorite Collectors Association, (NASA, 2019).
