LIVE! One Giant Leap: North Carolina to the Moon [and Back]

Friday, April 5, 10:15–11:15 a.m.

North Carolina has many connections to the Space Race! Join us as we explore Tar Heel ties to the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo missions with a very special guest: Mr. Gerry Griffin. Mr. Griffin is a former director of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center in Houston and, during NASA’s Apollo program, he was a flight director in Mission Control. As we explore the museum’s One Giant Leap exhibit, curator Jessica Bandel will share stories of the people, places, and things that helped mankind make that historic “one giant leap” on the moon.
