|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 9:00pm on Saturday, repeating until May 31, 2021

Experience the exciting adventures of Apollo astronauts on the Moon with young Carol and her dad. Learn what prompted the Race to the Moon, and become better acquainted with the attributes of Earth’s natural satellite. Then, discover how NASA plans to send humans back to the Moon, Mars, and beyond. You may be inspired to join this quest.

This program features the voices of Mary Morrison of WJBF in Augusta, GA (narrator), Tony Baughman of WKSK 92.7 FM (Dad), Moriah Melvin (young Carol), and Laura Melvin (Dr. Carol Bradford). This show was created for our Digistar II system. We have been very pleased with this show and keep it in our listing for archival purposes.

All shows last one hour unless otherwise noted. Each show includes a live “sky tonight” portion.

Showing on May 1, 8, 15, 22, 29.
