Cultural Days: Women in Apollo

Mar 16, 2019 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Join us to celebrate to contributions made by women in one of the greatest space exploration programs!

The primary objective of Apollo 9 was an Earth-orbital engineering test of the first crewed lunar module; it paved the path for finally landing men on the Moon. But there is more to the Apollo story than you might realize – more people involved that do not share in the limelight of the mission. Join us at the Museum as we celebrate the history of women who made the Apollo program happen! Through coding, learn about Margaret Hamilton, the founder of software engineering and developer of the software for Apollo. Discover Judith Cohen, who helped create the abort guidance system of the Apollo program. Recognize the hard work of the human computers who made sure the mission was a success.
