This July is the 50th anniversary of the 1969 moon landing. To celebrate STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory are hosting a week of events centred around this momentous and historic day. Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that landed the first two people on the moon.

The Talking Science event is on Friday 19 July and we have gained a time slot in the evening for a special event. We have access to the main moon exhibition in the new Visitors Centre. An Atlas computer will be on display in a side room and we will be given a talk about Atlas celebrating this ground-breaking step into supercomputing made in the UK. We will also hear a talk about the satellite dish just outside which was part of the global broadcast of the moon landing.

Sandwiches and cold drinks will be served.

Numbers will be limited and priority booking will be given to members. Minimum age is 16 years.

More details to follow.
