A Turning Point from Space

Protest and the Apollo mission

Neil Maher, a professor and writer who focuses on U.S. environmental and political history, will speak at the Beacon Sloop Club at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 6, about how protest movements in the 1960s pulled NASA’s attention away from space exploration. “Apollo in the Age of Aquarius” will cover how NASA responded to pressure from the activists and focused some of its technology back on earth.
