Moonglow: Project Apollo and U.S. Foreign Relations (at FSU)
7:00PM-8:30PM, Alumni Room, McCarthy Center, Framingham State University *** What was the political and foreign policy significance of the Apollo program, and what is its enduring legacy? We often remember Project Apollo as a feat of science and engineering but from the very start it was part of a broader geopolitical strategy to build alliances, win hearts and minds,¯ and secure superpower status in the Cold War. This presentation traces the politics of Project Apollo, from President John F. Kennedy's call in 1961 to win the battle between "freedom and tyranny¯" with lunar exploration, to President Richard Nixon's "Moonglow" diplomatic tour of southeast Asia in 1969, and considers how Apollo-era space diplomacy should inform space policy today. *** Free and open to the public. *** Register here: https://moonglow.eventbrite.com
