The July meeting of the Chicago Society for Space Studies (CSSS) will feature a panel discussion on the impact of the Apollo program, with an emphasis on the Apollo 11 mission as July 20, 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of humanity’s first steps on another world.

  • CSSS Vice President Larry Boyle
  • National Space Society Deputy Education Manager Frances Dellutri
  • Bill Higgins, a radiation safety physicist at Fermilab
  • CSSS President Jim Plaxco as moderator

Our panelists will address their personal memories of NASA’s Apollo program, Apollo’s impact on the space activist movement, its impact on science and technology, and more broadly the program’s societal impact.

The program starts at 1:00pm and will be followed by general discussion. The library opens at 12:00 noon and attendees are encouraged to arrive before the start of the presentation.
