Event description

Description

Hear the riveting story of how one Australian 17 year old accidentally found himself playing a small yet crucial role in the Apollo 11 landing at the Sea of Tranquillity 50 years ago in July 1969.

Robert Brand is still connected with Apollo 11’s key players, including Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins, and will give us first-hand insight into the mission and its astronauts as well as what lies in store for space exploration and his own business (ThunderStruck) as a space entrepreneur.


A FREE talk includes afternoon tea.
