Announcement: I’m offering to present Apollo and the Race to the Moon to schools, libraries and non-profits

July 2, 2019

Apollo and the Race to the Moon is the story of the space race from Sputnik to Apollo 17 between the United States and the Soviet Union that traces the United States’ incremental steps and the Soviets’ rather disorganized approach that allowed the US to be the first on the Moon.  The presentation by yours truly will be illustrated by images and a short video.

I will be giving this presentation as a NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador.  The presentation will be given free of charge for non-profit groups, libraries and schools.  I can be reimbursed for expenses if traveling over 50 miles from Traverse City, MI.  The presentation lasts a bit over an hour depending on the number of questions, which I welcome.

I’ve been an avid amateur astronomer and space enthusiast since before the launch of Sputnik, so I have lived through all these events.  For more information on me click on the About link above.  There’s even a timeline of my astronomy activities here.  The About link above contains a contact form where you can reach me.
