Priory Street Centre - York
15 Priory Street, York, YO1 6ET
The history of Spaceflight from the early days is well documented and recorded but some subjects are hardly mentioned or seen as taboo. Tonight’s presentation by spaceflight enthusiast Martin Dawson will hopefully address these issues. Learn how Neil Armstrong was selected to become the First Man on the moon. Learn how astronauts ‘went to the toilet’ when flying in space on these early missions and just how did Apollo 11’s lunar module do that famous landing 50 years ago.
