The Moon 50 years ago! It seems like yesterday….

Yesterday, we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Moon Landing in the day of the Apollo 11 mission lift-off, with a small conference and a night of observation of Jupiter, Saturn, a passagge of the ISS, and the partial eclipse of the Moon, of course!

The event, gathering the Faculty staff, the students, and many interested people from outside the University was a big success!

We are considering replicating it for the Apollo 13 mission…
