About this event:
Join Planetary Scientist Peter Thomas for an astronomy lecture on the topic of Apollo 8. 2018 was the 50th anniversary of the historic flight! Thomas will discuss how the first human flight away from Earth came about, how it was received in 1968, and how we talk about it and other space exploration today, a half century later.
This program aligns with 2019's library-wide theme of SPACE and is the first of a few lectures hosted by Cornell Astronomy. Additional details coming soon!
