Anniversary of a splashdown

Editor: The USS Hornet Museum will be hosting a celebration of the 52nd anniversary of the recovery of the Apollo 11 Astronauts by the USS Hornet.

Our program will include two Apollo Mission Control members, Joey Lazzaro (Flight Controller) & Jerry Bostick (Retrofire Officer and Flight Dynamics Officer). There will also be displays from NASA and other space program organizations (with information about Apollo and current space exploration activities), a model rocket display and of course our own Apollo exhibits.

We will have some presentations and a panel with Joey Lazzaro, Jerry Bostick and Hornet Crew members who served during the Apollo missions. Bob Fish, USS Hornet Board member and author of Hornet Plus Three will be the MC. Two Star Wars costume clubs (Rebel Legion Endor Base and 501st Legion Golden Gate Garrison) will be there as well for fun for the whole family.

Most events will be all day (from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.) but the presentation/panel portion of the day will start at 1 p.m. A full day of education and fun for everyone.
