Blast off with these other great events celebrating the Moon Landing

Milwaukee's Moon Mission

[Original Airdate: July 18, 2019]

Milwaukee-raised Capt. James Lovell talks to 10thirtysix about his role in the moon landing and his work on the Apollo and Gemini missions. He also talks about his fond memories of Milwaukee and his high school days. Plus, an encore of a story Sandy Maxx produced when she visited NASA for a NASA social event two years ago.

Much like the golden tickets handed out by Willy Wonka, NASA -- the National Aeronautics and Space Administration -- occasionally selects a few lucky people to tour its facilities for a behind-the-scenes look at the marvels of the space agency. These gatherings are called NASA Socials and participants are encouraged to share their experience on social media. Read More
