"The new race to the Moon. Who's ahead. Why it matters."

Having won the race to the moon against the USSR in 1969 the last boots on the lunar surface was during the Apollo XVII mission on December 14th, 1972. And with that human space missions were thereafter confined to Low Earth Orbit for over 50 years. But there's a new game afoot. Although Russia dropped the ball and is no longer a serious contender China has come in roaring. The USA has also poured billions into a new effort to again be the first to put humans back on the moon. Who will win? What are the stakes and will there be popular support this time around?

Please join us on October 2nd, 2024 at 6:00 pm, for our pre-dinner cocktail and chat time and remember to bring your friends and acquaintances. Reservations are required.
