PBS Nova First Man on the Moon cover art

Enjoy a showing of the PBS NOVA presentation of the First Man on the Moon,  an intimate portrait of Neil Armstrong through interviews with his family and friends, many of whom have never spoken publicly before. Seen through the eyes of those who were close to him, the film explores the man behind the myth, and also reveals his unsung achievements as a Navy combat veteran and pioneer of high-speed flight.  Introduction by UW Stout physics professor Alan Scott.  Complimentary Moon Pies and Tang will be served.

Part of a month-long series of programs celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.  In partnership with the UW Stout Department of Chemistry and Physics.
