Our next meeting will be Wed. March 20, 7:30pm - Lake Hills Library
Fifty years ago this summer the astronauts of Apollo 11 accomplished the first of any landings of any kind on another world.
Ron Hobbs, an Ambassador for to the solar System from NASA will be our speaker.
It was the beginning of the greatest expeditions in the history of humankind.
As we recognize these important anniversaries, new space races are emerging. They involve private industry
as well as the nations. This talk will cover the Apollo program and how it set the stage for the current rush into space.
Note the later start time:
This meeting will be at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday March 20 at Lake Hills Library. We will expect
to begin as close to 7:30 as possible.
Refreshments will be provided, as well as the always popular book drawing.
Apollo 11 - The Movie
Over the next months there will be a flood of Apollo 11 documentaries, books, t-shirts, toys, and all that kind of stuff in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing so long ago. An exciting year to be an Apollo enthusiast for sure. One of the really exciting movies coming out is releasing on March 8th in most of the big theaters. This looks great!
Don't forget our blog site! Remember, EAS does have a blog site with a lot of the latest space, astronomy, some aviation, and whatever else looks good to share. President Tom Gwilym writes the blog and usually has a new entry or two every week, depending on what is going on that looks interesting. The blog is very easy to update, so there is more new goodies to read there than on the main EAS site (this one you are looking at) so make sure to check that out now and then or you can even set up an RSS feed when something new is posted.
