The Early Days of the Space Program

October 24 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

As a kid, Sam Russell grew up tinkering with electronics and dreaming of travel to the moon. Later, trained as an engineer at MIT and RPI, he started work in space technology in the Sputnik era. Fascinated with the prospects of the Apollo project, he joined the team at RCA’s Astro division to help bring the final three Apollo lunar explorations into the living rooms of hundreds of millions of people. Come hear about Russell’s experiences working on the Apollo missions and the history of the development of the camera and communication systems he helped build, then stop by the Sarnoff’s Apollo: Space to Screen pop-up exhibit.
