In June 2019, ASME and Long Island’s Cradle of Aviation Museum kicked off a two-month-long celebration commemorating the 50th anniversary of human’s first step on the Moon. Sponsored primarily by ASME and Northrop Grumman, the event at the Cradle of Aviation Museum was highlighted by a panel discussion with astronauts and flight directors from several of the Apollo missions. In this video, the panelists discuss a variety of topics including personal experiences on their respective missions, the impact of the Moon landing, the Apollo 13 explosion and ultimate safe return of its crew, future space missions to the Moon and Mars.
