Spring 2020 Keynote Speaker

"To the Moon and Back Again: The Space Race, Buffalo-Niagara and the Impossible Task"

Since President Kennedy’s 1961 call to land a man on the moon, the story of the Apollo program has been streamlined and mythologized.  Seen now by many as a foregone conclusion, it is the one universally admired American accomplishment.  This talk will place the space race into the context of the 1950s and 60s. It will show how Kennedy’s audacious timeline required remarkable teamwork and sacrifice, highlighting the critical contributions from the Buffalo-Niagara Region, and it will try to explain why the moon landings did not lead to other manned space exploration.
