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


Exploring Space Lectures: The Future of Lunar Exploration-Jim Green, NASA

Presenter: Jim Green, NASA
June 19, 2019 | 8:00pm
Presented Online | Museum in Washington, DC

NASA’s future plans include going to the Moon to stay and then traveling on to Mars. The Moon provides the opportunity to accomplish transformational science in understanding the origin and evolution of the solar system. In human exploration, it’s a place for learning how to live and work on a planetary surface and is the next important test-bed for a Mars transportation system. Join NASA Chief Scientist Jim Green as he describes how the Moon provides a natural, yet challenging, environment for our next-generation robotic and human explorers.

The Exploring Space Lecture Series is made possible by the generous support of Aerojet Rocketdyne and United Launch Alliance.

Hear Buzz Aldrin tell the story of the first moon landing

Buzz Aldrin was the second man to set foot on the moon. In February 2016 Aldrin came to the Science Museum in London to tell the story of the historic mission in his own words.

On 16 July 1969, Apollo 11 launched from Cape Kennedy on its way to becoming the first manned spacecraft to land on the moon. Aboard were Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Buzz Aldrin - the three brave men who made the historic journey. On 20 July, Armstrong became the first man to set foot on the moon and Aldrin joined him on the lunar surface soon after. The moon walk lasted nearly two-and-a-half hours while the pair collected lunar samples and conducted experiments.

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

How NASA Observes Earth from Air & Orbit (live public talk)

To understand changes in our world, we need to observe from different perspectives. In time for the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, this month’s show will focus on how NASA monitors global change — from orbit, as you'd expect, but also from closer to the ground, with aircraft, boats and buoys. This webcast show will be conducted via video conference, with speakers joining remotely from home. Watch live via YouTube and submit your questions via the chat.

Celebrating 50th anniversary of the moon landing

The historic 1969 moon landing has had many repercussions and impacts. It was the first time man had successfully travelled to earth's only satellite. One of those watching was a young teenager named Richard Branson. And it would inspire him later to travel to space.
