    Relive the dramatic “Space Race” from the pioneering Mercury and Gemini flights to the first Apollo Moon landing, and the lesser-known scientific missions that followed. Learn about the visionaries and scientists who made space travel possible, and the brave American astronauts who risked their lives to boldly travel into the unknown.

    Presented by author Kevin Woyce, this fascinating lecture is illustrated with historic photos and vintage concept art.

    Antarctica is the most alien place on the planet, the only part of the earth where humans could never survive unaided. Out of our fascination with it have come many books, most of which focus on only one aspect of its unique strangeness. None has managed to capture the whole story—until now.

    Drawing on her broad travels across the continent, in Antarctica Gabrielle Walker weaves all the significant threads of life on the vast ice sheet into an intricate tapestry, illuminating what it really feels like to be there and why it draws so many different kinds of people. With her we witness cutting-edge science experiments, visit the South Pole, lodge with American, Italian, and French researchers, drive snowdozers, drill ice cores, and listen for the message Antarctica is sending us about our future in an age of global warming.

    Books are available at the Circulation Desk; new members always welcome!
