The Wonder of it All
How does exploring space change you? The award-winning documentary “The Wonder of It All” focuses on the Apollo astronauts and their unique experiences during and following the historic Moon missions. This fresh approach to revisiting the Apollo Era intends to preserve the thoughts and emotions of these iconic heroes for future generations.
In honor of the upcoming Apollo 11 50th anniversary we are combining three events into one big celebration. Join us June 28 at 6:15 p.m. for Starlight Social drinks* and networking. Stick around for a special Thought Leader Series presentation with “The Wonder of it All” director Jeffrey Roth at 7 p.m. as well as a screening of documentary film “The Wonder of it All” as part of our Space on Screen series.
“The Wonder of it All honors the men who walked on the moon and became heroes to a nation,” director Jeffrey Roth said. “They fulfilled the dream of humankind to set foot on another world and, in so doing, forever changed the way we view ourselves.”
