2012's Purdue Space Day was all about the Moon! We celebrated the 40th anniversary of the last manned mission to the Moon, and tip our astronaut helmets to Neil Armstrong and those 'Small Steps' that have become so big!
Purdue University has a great tradition with the Apollo program and we are proud that both the 'First - Neil Armstrong' and the 'Last - Gene Cernan' on the Moon were graduates of Purdue.
Each of the groups was named after each of the astronauts on Apollo Lunar Missions 11-17. We are delighted to have three of Purdue's current astronauts, Andrew Feustel, David Wolf, and Scott Tingle as our guest astronauts!
Purdue Space Day 2012 was a tremendous success and we would like to thank Andrew Feustel, Scott Tingle and David Wolf for making the day an 'Out of this world' experience!
We are excited to be able to share the Astronauts' Presentation with you.
