2726 - From the Earth to the Moon: History of the Apollo Program
2019 is the 60th anniversary of the US astronaut program and the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. The story of what happened in the ten years between those two dates is one of the most significant in history. How we went from launching a 34 pound radio beacon to landing 12 people on the moon a little more than a decade later is possibly the greatest technological achievement ever. We are 50 years further down the road and we couldn't think about doing it today for several years even with all of our modern resources focused on the project. We will start with the selection of the first astronauts in 1959 to Gene Cernan's last step on the moon in 1972. The Mercury & Gemini missions will be covered but much of the course will be devoted to the Apollo moon missions Lecture (plus Questions)Viewing videos
