BSIG Winter Presentation Featuring Dave Falkner

February 24 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm CST

The MAS invites everyone to the virtual Beginner’s Group Presentation using ZOOM..

Featured Speaker:   Dave Falkner
Topic: “Discovering the Moon: Missions to the Moon and What We Have Discovered”​


The talk will begin with a brief summary on the historical importance of the Moon including telescopic discoveries. I’ll then go into the early space program and the Cold War space race between the USSR and the United States to send a man to the Moon and the discoveries made during the Apollo missions. I’ll follow that up with the post-Apollo unmanned missions by various countries and some of the significant discoveries that have been made. I’ll wrap up by talking about plans for mankind returning to the Moon and possibly colonizing it.”

Dave is a former MAS President, and is currently the MAS Secretary. He is also a NASA Ambassador, and recently traveled to Chile to visit some of the world’s largest observatory telescopes.

In order to ensure the most success we are asking everyone to follow a couple of rules:

1. Don’t turn on your camera – it sucks up bandwidth and we really don’t need to see you.
2. Keep your microphone muted until you are prompted during a question and answer session during the presentation. This will cut down background noise substantially.
3. You can request to ask a question in the chat area in Zoom and wait to be prompted by the moderator.

We hope you can join us.
Clear skies!
