WIA-E Bremen report on APOLLO 50 - get together with Dr. Muir-Harmony
on 26 March 2019, our WIA-E Bremen local group organized a get-together event with the support of the U.S. Consulate General in Hamburg with Dr. Muir-Harmony, who has written on the history of science diplomacy, international science exhibitions, and the politics of spaceflight.
Her book, Apollo to the Moon: A History in Fifty Objects (National Geographic, 2018), highlights the Apollo Collection at the Smithsonian Institution.
Several questions have been addressed regarding untold tales of the Apollo Mission from the favourite artefact of the book to the current Moon race.
The talk was so interesting that many anecdotes on human spaceflights travels and International Space Station come out from the participants. It coincides with the day the the first fully-women Extra Vehicular Activity outside ISS was cancelled because on board are not available two space suite “size M”!
Hereafter some pictures of the get-together.
