Apollo 11 launched from Cape Kennedy on July 16, 1969, carrying Commander Neil Armstrong, Command Module Pilot Michael Collins and Lunar Module Pilot Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin into an initial Earth-orbit of 114 by 116 miles. An estimated 530 million people watched Armstrong's televised image and heard his voice describe the event as he took "...one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind" on July 20, 1969.

You've heard of virtual reality - but what is it? This is your chance to give it a try!

In virtual reality, a participant holds controllers, wears goggles and ear phones to play, and their world is displayed on a screen for all others to watch. Each participant will get approximately 7 minutes of virtual reality, and plenty of time to observe others while playing.

At this event, you'll "experience" space flight, a space walk, and lunar landing!

Free and Open to the Public.

For adults and kids 10 and older!

Made possible by support from the Friends of the Athol Public Library.

Registration Required.

Limited to 35 participants.

Please call (978) 249-9515 to sign up!
