SCIENCE: Beyond Earth: 50 Years since Apollo 11

California State Univeristy, Chico believes in providing access to its diverse student, employee, and community audiences. 

In a very interactive presentation, Dr. Scott Petty explains what we knew before and after the monumental moon landing on July 20, 1969. Celebrating its 50th anniversary, he demonstrates the mysteries of our solar system and describes the Apollo 11 landing in detail. Dr. Perry concludes that, “Humans will continue to contemplate and learn about the stars as we have in the past but we are very unlikely to ever launch even robotic missions to the stars.”
