Astronaut Buzz Aldrin on the surface of the moon, July 20, 1969

What to look for on Smart Talk, July 16, 2019:

50 years ago, on July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 touched down on the surface of the moon.

As the 50th Anniversary of the historic mission approaches, WITF’s Smart Talk Road Trip visits The North Museum of Nature and Science in Lancaster.

Appearing on Smart Talk to discuss the 50th anniversary of the moon landing as well as the United States space program today and tomorrow are Dr. David Fisher, Professor of Physics & Astronomy and spaceflight historian at Lycoming College, Tom Usciak, a photographer of missions since Apollo, and Axel Diaz, Solar System Ambassador at NASA.

Then, we’ll pivot to discuss the North Museum’s planetarium and stargazing in Pennsylvania. Joining that conversation are “Cosmic Mike,” Senior Astronomy Educator at the North Museum, and Lane Davis, President of the Astronomy Enthusiasts of Lancaster County.

This Smart Talk Road Trip is supported by Roof Advisory Group, Michael’s Motor Cars, and The North Museum of Nature and Science.
