Join us for a video recording of a presentation given by experts at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.  The Apollo program's "giant leap" took a decade of intense preparation to accomplish, and required a huge support system back on Earth throughout. As NASA's leading center for robotic exploration and deep space communication, JPL's role in Apollo was primarily in robotic precursor missions that helped pave the way, and management of the Deep Space Network which relayed TV transmissions and provided an important backup communications capability. This event will focus on understanding JPL's supporting role in one of humanity's greatest achievements.  Participate in a class discussion following the presentation.
