We remember Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the Moon. We remember Apollo 13. But how are we exploring the moon today? Join us for a fascinating evening exploring the “New Moon” with Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab’s Dr. Brett Denevi, Planetary Scientist, and Michael Paul, Space Exploration Mission Formulation Lead. Dr. Denevi will present recent developments in lunar science and exploration, including ongoing and future missions being designed right here in Howard County. Afterwards, enjoy a viewing of the full dome movie, “Back to the Moon for Good” in which groups of everyday citizens compete to launch their own rockets to the moon! Michael Paul, who led one of the Lunar Xprize teams, and is featured in the movie, will speak afterwards about the experience and take questions.

Ages 55+ / $9 per person.
