The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster will present a talk titled "One Giant Leap for Mankind," with NASA Solar System Ambassador Marie Kesten Zahn, on July 16 at 11:30 AM.

On July 20, 1969, the first humans stepped foot on the Moon, meaning that this year marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing and a momentous undertaking of space exploration. Solar System Ambassador Marie Kesten Zahn and her audience will take a look at the Apollo mission program and the biggest rocket ever launched. Following the presentation there will be a moon-themed art project.

Ms. Zahn, who grew up on Cape Cod, is an archaeologist, artifact conservator, and space scientist. The program is free with museum admission.
