Evening Lecture: The Space Race
This month, while the planetarium is closed for renovations, astronomer Mark Fairclough will give two lectures focusing on the past, present and future of space exploration. The program will begin with ‘Space Race” flights of project Mercury, the X -15 rocket powered aircraft, and Ham the chimpanzee. It will continue with the first American in space, Alan Shepard, and the Apollo project that ultimately put astronauts on the Moon. The program will close with a discussion of the unmanned test launch of the Orion Multi-purpose Crew Vehicle (MPCV) planned for September 2014.
