Apollo 11—Mission of the Millennium

Tom Northrop of BREC will present an extended highlighting of the trip that three men took—as the rest of the human species watched, waited, hoped and cheered. Assisted by the scientists and engineers and politicians and other supporters (and preceded by other brave astronauts who paved the way), Neil Armstrong, Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin and Michael Collins committed themselves to a goal that accelerated technological progress and elevated the human spirit.

Wonders of the Summer Sky

The temperature heats up as July’s constellations settle high overhead early in the night. BREC Education Curator Amy Brouillette takes the audience on a fascinating tour of Baton Rouge’s summer season. She highlights the celestial gems that will sparkle throughout the next three months—gems that visitors will be able to see live if they continue to visit HRPO!
