Beyond the Telescope

: The Space-Age Presidency of JFK

President Kennedy is indelibly linked in the minds of most Americans with his bold 1961 goal of “landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the Earth,” but he also put his imprint on many other aspects of the US space program during his time in office. Join John Bisney and J.L. Pickering, authors of The Space-Age Presidency of John F. Kennedy: A Rare Photographic History, as they explore Kennedy’s lesser-known interactions with America’s space program and the race to the Moon.

This program is free thanks to the generosity of the Lowell Institute.
