This once in a lifetime opportunity offers you the chance to meet Jerry Bostick, former NASA mission specialist and Flight Dynamics Officer for the ill-fated Apollo 13 mission. Jerry was part of the frontline team that helped ensure the safe return of the Apollo 13 astronauts and his two-decade career with NASA spanned the most exciting times thus far in human space travel and exploration.
Jerry will be giving a talk sharing his experiences and amazing stories as well as taking questions in a wonderfully beautiful part of Wales. The rural location and dark skies above make for a great stargazing spot! Together this makes for a truly fantastic and memorable weekend away with camping and local facilities nearby.
This event is in support of Llanwddyn Community Centre which needs a new roof so your attendance would be both very welcome and worthwhile too!
