Apollo 17 Commemorative Presentation with Dave Gianakos and Steve Brower
Time: Saturday, December 18, 2010 - 2:00pm - 3:00pm
Event Type: Public Program
Location: William M. Allen Theater
Dave Gianakos and Steve Brower will commemorate the 38th Anniversary of Apollo 17 with a panel discussion of the historical significance of the Apollo 17 mission, and particularly the lunar module the astronauts flew to and from the surface of the Moon. Apollo 17 (Dec. 7-19, 1972) was the last manned mission to the Moon. Gianakos is a master model maker who crafted the highly-detailed, 1/6-scale models of the Apollo 17 lunar rover vehicle and lunar module Challenger on display at the Museum beginning Dec. 18. Brower designed and built the Museum’s full-scale replica of a Lunar Module Ascent Stage which is configured to represent Apollo 17's Challenger. Gianakos and Brower will also talk about how they created their museum-quality models.
Program is Free with Museum admission or membership.
