Kopernik Observatory Special Event

Apollo 12 – From the Sea of Tranquility to the Ocean of Storms –Phil Cooper

Apollo 12 showed the world we could land on the moon again, this time, staying longer and conducting real science. Mr. Cooper will relive that flight and discuss the accident that almost caused an abort of the launch, the pinpoint landing, and practical jokes played by the first artist astronaut. He also will look at the story behind the Apollo spacecraft, but more importantly, the story behind this crew of friends who risked their lives to set sail to the Ocean of Storms.
