Science on a Sphere Spotlight: Moon Landing
Saturday, April 27, 1 pm

Space flight Apollo 11 landed the first two people on the Moon (1969). It's not a coincidence that a few months later (1970) the first Earth Day took place. Apollo 11 gave us views of the whole Earth such as "Earthrise" which generated an appreciation for our home planet. NASA has continued to capture images from space since then. One of them, the stunning "Blue Marble" you can see on the Science on a Sphere at NNC. Join us to learn more about the first moon landings and see how Earth looks from outer space.
