Coffee at the Cosmo on Thursday, October 21, is entitled, “Man on the Moon on the Move: Lunar Rovers.” It is at 9 a.m. at the Cosmosphere and is free and open to the public.
Comedian Jerry Seinfeld joked, “Only a man would go 240,000 miles and take a car to drive around some more.” While he thought it was to try and impress women, come to the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center and hear the real reasons we took a “car” to the moon, learn how it operated, and as always, see fascinating artifacts directly related to the Lunar Rover.
Coffee at the Cosmo is an ongoing series of free presentations at the Cosmosphere. It’s the third Thursday of every month at 9 a.m. and is always free. Enjoy coffee and pastries, meet new friends, and learn something new.
