ONE GIANT LEAP: Apollo 11 @ 50 Conference

The Apollo 11 Moon landing on July 20, 1969, marked a watershed moment in human history for science, engineering, and culture, not only in the United States, but around the globe. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of that landmark series of events, the Cultural Center at Hofstra University, in partnership with the Cradle of Aviation Museum, will host an interdisciplinary conference, One Giant Leap: Apollo 11 @50, to be held on the Hofstra campus April 2-3, 2019. The conference will consider both the scientific and technological dimensions of the landing on the moon and its cultural and political repercussions, both locally on Long Island and around the world.


Dates: April 2-3, 2019

Location: Hofstra University

Presented by the Hofstra Cultural Center, in collaboration with the Cradle of Aviation Museum.
