Event Details

Wednesday, July 17, 2019
7-8:15 p.m.
“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” It’s been 50 years since Neil Armstrong spoke the famous words, during the first visit to another world. This presentation of Wednesday Nite @ The Lab will celebrate the events of July 20, 1969: the landing of Apollo 11 on the Moon, completing President John F. Kennedy’s goal before the decade was out. We’ll visit some of the events of the mission, along with some of the biological results of Apollo.
