Baby Steps to the Moon

This program is held in conjunction with Booth Library's spring exhibit, "On the Shoulders of Giants: The Moon and Beyond." For more information on the exhibit and programming series, visit https://library.eiu.edu/exhibits/space, and find Booth Library on Facebook and Twitter.

Feb. 21, 3:30 p.m., “Baby Steps to the Moon,” presented by Steve Daniels, chair, Department of Physics, Witters Conference Room 4440, Booth Library.

On July 20, 1969 Neil Armstrong stepped off of the Lunar Module and onto the surface of the Moon saying “One small step for a man”.  That was during the Apollo 11 mission.  But many small steps occurred during the previous Apollo missions to get to that point.  I will discuss the Apollo program and the many steps that had never been taken before as we reached for our goal.  Each of these steps were necessary preparation for Mr. Armstrong’s grand finale.
