Periodic Tables

In 1969, we did the impossible - humans landed on the moon and returned safely to earth. As the 50th anniversary year of the first moon landing draws to a close, join us for an evening of pictures and stories from Project Apollo. We will examine key moments of each mission from Apollo 1 to Apollo 17. The program is appropriate for all ages of people interested in learning more about humanity's first trips to the moon!

Tina CoyneSmith is a stargazer and space historian who was born just after Apollo 9 proved the success of the lunar module. Tina serves as a NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador who is tasked with telling NASA's stories.
