The Eastern Shore Public Library will host the live streaming of Nasa’s Apollo moon landing 50th anniversary programming on Friday, July 19 at 1:00 pm.  The program “NASA’s Giant Leaps: Past and Future – Celebrating Apollo 50th as We Go Forward to the Moon” will be viewed on the large screen at the public libraries in Accomac and Nassawadox. The libraries will also offer some special snacks and activities for all ages. The 2019 Summer Reading Program is space themed to coincide with the Apollo anniversary.  This event is free, open to the public and appropriate for all ages.  Children and adults are welcome to dress in their favorite space-fun costume.

On July 19, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing, NASA will be broadcasting live from four locations – NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, the historic, newly-restored Apollo mission control room at Johnson Space Center in Houston, the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, and the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington, which will include a special guest host. The broadcast will include a live look-in on Neil Armstrong’s hometown of Wapakoneta, Ohio, a look at the Apollo 11 command module on display in Seattle, and slices of Americana at other anniversary celebrations around the country. NASA will tell the story of getting to the moon, and how they plan to go there again.
