About

It's hard to believe that it has been 50 years since humans first set foot on another celestial body. To celebrate this historic event, RVAS presents a short history of the Apollo missions that resulted from the race to space against the Soviet Union. We'll cover the major milestones of the Apollo program along with the technological and engineering feats accomplished during NASA's first decade. Learn how that first small step advanced by tremendous strides our understanding of the moon and the history of the solar system. Then we'll explore the next steps in returning to the moon to stay. And, if weather permits, we'll go outside and take a look at the Apollo landing sites through a small telescope.
