I was honored to be on panels and provide a talk on my new National Geographic book, Moon Rush – The New Space Race, at the fabulous Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles.

In my talk, I detailed the story of the path for our return to the Moon. This time, however, it’s not just NASA that’s going. Nations from all over the world and private industry have big plans.

Golden Moon

The presentation was streamed live on July 21, 2019, one part of the Observatory’s “Golden Moon” celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing mission.

For my appearance, I was joined by Dr. Laura Danly, Curator for the Griffith Observatory, and Lon Rains, my former editor at SpaceNews.
