Moon Landing in Context

A reflection on the historical and cultural context of one of the most celebrated achievements in the history of humanity.

Through this project, the FSU community explores the history and social environment that intertwines with the events that led to the Moon Landing or were affected by it. We reflect on the impact that these events, collectively, have on today’s society and how they inform the way we are tackling the big challenges of today and the future. The project benefits from resources and support from Framingham State University and the Smithsonian Institution. 

All of Moon Landing in Context events are held at Framingham State University and are free and open to the public. See also FSU Press Release
