Moon Struck! Celebrating Apollo's 50th Anniversary (Live Public Talk)

Original air date: Thursday, July 11, 7pm PT

As part of the intense, decade-long effort that led to human footprints on the lunar surface, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory launched a series of robotic precursors to the Moon. It proved a formidable challenge — the first six missions failed, putting at risk the laboratory’s ambitions to explore the solar system.

Meanwhile, Caltech — which operates JPL for NASA — established a laboratory in the mid-1960s to help develop the new techniques that would be needed for analyzing lunar samples. And once the Apollo 11 Moon rocks were on the ground, the Caltech researchers raced to contribute to the first stunning scientific results NASA shared with the world.

This event will focus on understanding the supporting roles these institutions played in one of humanity's greatest achievements, and consider what might lie ahead in exploring the Moon. Take a journey back in time to learn how JPL found its way to success in the early days of the space race and how both Caltech and JPL have contributed to exploring and understanding our nearest celestial neighbor.

Host: Preston Dyches
Speaker(s): Blaine Baggett, JPL Fellow and Emmy award-winning producer; Arden Albee, Caltech Professor of Geology and Planetary Science, Emeritus; John Casani, JPL veteran engineer of the Ranger and Surveyor era

“The Spirit of Apollo” - A Celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 8 Mission to the Moon

This month marks the 50th anniversary of NASA’s Apollo 8 mission, which was the first to bring humans to another world as they orbited the Moon on Christmas Eve, 1968.

To commemorate this historic event in human spaceflight and NASA’s history, Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum will present “Spirit of Apollo,” a program celebrating the milestone Apollo 8 mission, which brought humanity together and pushed the limits of exploration.

The event took place at 8 p.m. EST, Tuesday, Dec. 11, at Washington National Cathedral.

Apollo at 50 Astronaut Dinner at the Cradle of Aviation Museum

On July 20, 1969, 600 million people around the world jointly watched Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin take their first steps on the moon. It was the greatest human and technological achievement of our time. And the spaceship that put man on the moon was built by Long Islanders. From 1961 to 1972, Long Island’s Grumman Engineers, designed, assembled and tested the Grumman Lunar Module that in total successfully landed 12 men on the moon.

Nobody at Grumman who worked on the LM will ever forget it… we all knew that we were part of a majestic endeavor, that we were making history happen.
- Thomas J. Kelly (Father of the Lunar Module).

Fifty years later, we are joining together again to celebrate, acknowledge and reflect on this historic event and the role that Long Islanders played in the success of the program and the universal feelings of pride, accomplishment, hope, and optimism that the moon landing generated around the world.

Join us for this once in a lifetime experience.

bluedot 2019 | James Burke & Dallas Campbell: Moon Landings

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Apollo XI, author & TV presenter Dallas Campbell joined us in conversation with British broadcaster James Burke, the key voice for the BBC coverage of the moon landings in 1969. Here they discuss the biggest gamble of his career, which had he not taken would have lead to the BBC missing one of the most iconic moments in space exploration history.

bluedot is an award-winning festival of discovery at the grounds of a deep space observatory. Set against a backdrop of the iconic Lovell Telescope at Jodrell Bank, bluedot combines a truly stellar line-up of music with a ground-breaking programme of live science experiments, expert talks and immersive artworks.

Restored Mission Control comes alive 50 years after Apollo

HOUSTON (AP) — Gone is the haze of cigarette, cigar and pipe smoke. Gone are the coffee, soda and pizza stains. With only a few exceptions, NASA’s Apollo-era Mission Control has been restored to the way it looked 50 years ago when two men landed on the moon. It gets the stamp of approval from retired flight director Gene Kranz, a man for whom failure — or even a minor oversight — is never an option. Seated at the console where he ruled over Apollo 11, Apollo 13 and so many other astronaut missions, Kranz pointed out that a phone was missing behind him. And he said the air vents used to be black from all the smoke, not sparkly clean like they are now. Those couple of details aside, Kranz could close, then open his eyes, and transport himself back to July 20, 1969, and Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin’s momentous moon landing. “When I sit down here and I’m in the chair at the console ... I hear these words, ‘Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed,’” Kranz said during a sneak preview at NASA’s Johnson Space Center. With all the empty seats, the room reminds him of a shift change when flight controllers would hit the restroom. “It’s just nice to see the thing come alive again,” said Kranz, who titled his autobiography, “Failure is Not an Option.” Friday’s grand opening — just three weeks shy of the 50th anniversary of humanity’s first otherworldly footsteps — culminates years of work and millions in donations. It opens to the public Monday. Meticulously recreated down to the tan carpeting, gray-green wallpaper, white ceiling panels, woven-cushioned seats, amber glass ashtrays and retro coffee cups, Project Apollo’s Mission Operations Control Room never looked — or smelled — so good. The goal was “to capture the look and feel of July of ’69,” said NASA’s restoration project manager Jim Thornton. “The place is designated a National Historic Landmark,” he said. “It’s not for the brick and mortar of the building, it’s for the amazing feats that happened inside of the building.” Johnson’s historic preservation officer, Sandra Tetley, strove for accuracy. Her quest began in 2013, after the room had fallen into neglect. It was last used for space shuttle flights in the 1990s, then abandoned and opened to tourists. The restoration effort finally got traction in 2017. The room was closed, and construction began. More than $5 million was raised, most of it donations. The city of Webster across the street kicked in $3.5 million. Tetley and her team interviewed flight controllers and directors now in their 70s and 80s. They pored through old pictures and brought in specialists in paint, wallpaper, carpeting, electricity and upholstery. Original swatches of carpet and wallpaper and an original ceiling tile turned up. Intent on authenticity, they scoured eBay and vintage shops for ashtrays and cups and turned to 3D-laser printing to recreate lids for the back-of-the-seat ashtrays in the glassed-in visitors’ section overlooking the control room.

Things you can do: What can you do to get the grid hardened?
1. Work with local emergency providers (and utility companies), get them to hold drills about what to do when there is a month's (years) long nationwide (no support coming from other states as usual) grid down situation. Once they get the gravity of it they will push internally through their organizational levels within the utility companies and local/state officials to do something about it. Ambassador Hank Cooper did just that in your area and got Duke Power to agree to harden their grids.
2. Contact you state and federal elected officials and demand they take action to get the grid hardened.
3. Contact your state Public Service Commission and demand they take action to get the grid hardened.
4. Join groups advocating power grid defense. See my site's links page:

From Apollo to Artemis: Expanding the Frontier — Matt Abbott, NASA Flight Director

Looking back on 50 years since Apollo 11 and the first footprints on the moon, then ahead to the new wave of missions to the Moon, Mars and beyond, NASA Flight Director Matt Abbott takes us on a ride through space exploration past, present and future.

Matt Abbot's entire professional career has been in support of human
spaceflight programs, beginning as a Space Shuttle Flight Dynamics student intern at NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC). He served for 12 years as a Space Shuttle Flight Dynamics Officer before joining the contractor team at the Canadian Space Agency in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, as an International Space Station (ISS) mobile servicing system space operations lead engineer. Matt returned to JSC after being selected by NASA as a Flight Director in October 2000, where he led Mission Control Center flight control teams during Space Shuttle and ISS operations for over 18 years. In early 2019 he took a leadership position responsible for operations integration in support of NASA’s newest human exploration programs.
