Launch Pad Lecture Slated for Friday, February 4
Apollo 14 was a mission of unusual things – from problems with the docking procedure that jeopardized the lunar landing, to the first round of golf on the surface of the moon – the third landing on the moon was a “wow” by any standard. Learn more on Friday, February 4th, when Museum Outreach Coordinator Tony Gondola presents “Back in the Saddle Again: The Flight of Apollo 14” as part of the museum’s monthly Launch Pad Lecture series.
The Launch Pad Lecture begins at 9:00 am on the museum’s first floor and is free to the public. Coffee and donuts are compliments of the International Space Hall of Fame Foundation.
