Saturn V - the first 700 seconds
As we witnessed each launch of the Apollo program, we would forever remember the countdown, ignition sequence, images of the Saturn V rocket engines billowing out vast, fast and furious hot gas, and then lift off. We'll never forget those sheets of ice breaking off the exterior and raining down on the launch pad as the rocket cleared the tower. What we saw, what we remember, and the extent of what was broadcast on the daily news is a very small fraction of all that lead to NASA's greatest achievements. Highlighting some of the interesting and little known technical aspects of the various missions, Faride Khalaf will take you down memory lane and visit the Apollo program in a unique way. We will focus on some of the details starting from launch preparation to the last rocket blast that sent the gallant crew and their spacecraft to the moon. In this presentation, you'll find answers to questions that Walter Cronkite never thought to ask!
Come join us and relive the oldest of human dreams, a dream worth revisiting.
