The Space Race with Kevin Woyce
A Worlds to Discover Event. Monday, August 5 at 7:00pm. No registration required. In May, 1961, President John F. Kennedy announced his daring plan for the American space program: landing a man on the Moon before the end of the decade. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing on July 20, 1969, this presentation is packed with historic photographs and vintage concept art. Relive the dramatic “Space Race,” from the pioneering Mercury and Gemini flights to the first Apollo Moon landings and the lesser-known scientific missions that followed. Kevin Woyce is an author, photographer, and lecturer specializing in regional American history. His books include Hudson River Lighthouses: An Illustrated History.
