Join the Friends of Mayo Dark Skies in the W Cinema Westport on 20th July to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.

50 years ago the most complex and ambitious scientific project ever undertaken by humanity reached its climax as three men set out to walk on the Moon.

It was the culmination of a project set in motion nine years earlier by President John F Kennedy, a project which had taken the combined effort of over 440,000 individuals and some 4,000 companies and organisations. In this talk historian and astronomer Brian MacGabhann will examine the logistical, scientific and technological challenges which had to be overcome, the remarkable human talent and courage it demanded, and the way in which a project born out of conflict and hostility united humanity across the globe; if only for a brief moment.
