Happy Birthday Tranquility Base
22nd July 2019 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Only 24 humans have ever gone to the Moon. Only twelve of those
have walked on the surface of our nearest neighbour. One brought some tartan
along for the ride. Journey with a space-race geek who never got to see a
Saturn V fly and still won’t forgive himself for missing a Space Shuttle
launch. How did we do it? Why did we do it? What the heck does “SCE to AUX”
