APOLLO 11 EVENT: The Space Race- with Kevin Woyce

6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Kent Public Library
Program Room

Event Details

The Soviet Union stunned the world in 1957, by putting the first artificial
satellite into Earth orbit. By 1961, the Russians had also launched the first
manned spacecraft and sent the first robotic probes to the Moon.

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.

Join Kevin Woyce and 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. Along the way, Kevin will introduce the visionaries and scientists who made space travel possible, and the American astronauts who boldly traveled “Where no one has gone before.”
