First To The Moon: 50 years since we left earth orbit

Wavelength Brewing Company is honored to welcome Francis French, Director of Education at the San Diego Air & Space Museum, for another great Friday Night Science Talk!

Half a century ago, humans first left the relative safety of Earth orbit for a three-day, quarter of a million mile journey to the moon. First, however, the Apollo program had to recover from a devastating fire that killed a crew, test the spacecraft - and do it with the deadline of the end of the decade looming.

Join us on a journey through the seven short years from the first flight into space to the first moon mission, with Russians and Americans neck and neck to claim the glory.
