Late July marks 50 years since the launch of the Apollo 15 mission, the bold manned mission that delivered the first rover to our moon. It's time to celebrate with hands-on educational space activities (hosted by our partners at the National Space Society), lovely views of the cosmos through our portable telescopes, an engaging Space Race presentation, and our network of Solar System Ambassadors, astronomers and engineers!
Sponsored by the City of Lake Geneva, the event will take place on Thursday, July 22nd in Dunn Field (behind Eastview Elementary, on the corner of Sage and Waverly). Activities will begin at 7:00pm, and the event runs until 10:00pm. The event is free, but a $5/person suggested donation is recommended. As always, ASL interpretation will be provided, and activities are designed to be accessible for everyone.
Brian Ewensen, an Aerospace Educator, Consultant and Professional Speaker on Aviation and Aerospace, will be speaking at 7:30pm on The Space Race: From Apollo to Artemis and Beyond. During the Cold War, two superpowers raced towards the Moon. Each program built upon the challenges and successes of the previous ones. Now, 50 years later, we are poised to return: not only to explore, but to stay and use the Moon's resources as a springboard to further destinations.
It's your chance to learn about the universe, engage space in a new way, and explore fascinating exhibits (including Space Shuttle Heat Tiles, Spacewalk pants, Apollo era memorabilia, and more)! Register today at https://www.glaseducation.org/summer-star-parties-2021/
