Jerry Stone – They Day They Launched a Woodpecker – Part 2

21 September 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Did you know
That America once sent 50 elephants to the Moon?
That Buzz Aldrin put a Union Jack on the Moon?
About the lunar fork-lift truck?
Or how Zambia trained astronauts to go to the Moon…

Once again we welcome Science and Astronomy presenter Jerry Stone with another of his amazing talks – Part 2 of The Day They Launched a Woodpecker, this time mainly about the Apollo missions. Next year will be the 50th anniversary of the first man landing on the moon.

Jerry will also have copies of two of his publications with him: “One Small Step” (£15), commemorating the moon landing, and Dorling Kindersley’s “Find Out – Universe” (£6), an updated version due for publication on 8 September.
