St. Louis Astronomical Society Meeting
While millions dream of traveling to the Moon, only 24 people have had an opportunity to do it. This talk aims to take listeners on a multimedia journey through space and time. We will traverse the intersection of science and exploration from Apollo 15, to the upcoming Artemis mission in 2024. Apollo 15, which just celebrated its 49th anniversary, was the first of what was called the Apollo "J" missions. Apollo 15 was capable of a longer stay time, greater surface mobility, and more significant science than previous missions. When we return to the Moon with Artemis, we will be building upon Apollo, advancements in human spaceflight from the shuttle and International Space Station, and commercial and international partnerships. Apollo and Artemis are benchmarks for what is, and what can be possible for lunar exploration. As Isaac Newton wrote in the 17th century, "If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants."
