Virtual Club Meeting

Friday June 18th

The RRAS will host a virtual public meeting on Friday, June 18th, starting at 7:30 PM. Special guest speaker Jim Greenhouse, Space Science Director at the NM Museum of Natural History, will describe the incredible Apollo program and its achievement of sending the first people to the lunar surface over 50 years ago. Then, he'll reveal the latest information on a new initiative, called Artemis, to return Americans to the moon in the next few years. Find out the similarities and differences between each mission.

The meeting is limited to one hundred participants, and preregistration is required. To preregister, click on the link below.  An email will be sent out on the morning of the 18th with instructions on how to join the zoom meeting.
