“One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” Following in such giant footsteps there are again plans to put people on the Moon. Artemis is the first step in the next era of human exploration. Together with commercial and international partners, NASA will establish a sustainable presence on the Moon to prepare for missions to Mars. The first flight is an unmanned test run of the flight. The second is a repeat of the first but this time with astronauts on board. The third flight is the one where we are expecting to see footsteps on the Moon once more. Roger will fill in the gaps and give us the latest update on the missions. After six decades, Roger O’Brien is still an amateur astronomer. Whilst working for 26 years in a bank in the City, he “survived” to earn a BSc in Astronomy and began teaching. One course was held at the Sele School and it was students from that course, who founded the Hertford Astronomy Group. He says that one of his proudest moments was to be elected President of HAG.
Next Meeting: Wednesday September 14th at 8:00pm on Zoom and Face to Face* Artemis - the Next Giant Leap Presented by Roger O’Brien *by ticket only Live Session T&Cs apply
