Celebrate the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11 at the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center with author Francis French. Drawing from first-hand interviews with the spacefarers, French will describe in vivid detail just how the first lunar landing crew was chosen against the backdrop of a tense and dynamic race to the moon between two combative superpowers. A book signing by French will follow the talk.
