NASA Historians Plan Stealth History Event

NASA Marshall, University of Alabama in Huntsville to host NASA in the South Symposium March 28-29; Media Invited

"Presenters will include Douglas Brinkley, author of "American Moonshot: John F. Kennedy and the Great Space Race," James Hansen, author of "First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong," and Roger Launius, author of "Apollo's Legacy: Perspectives on the Moon Landings." Diane McWhorter, author of "Carry Me Home: Birmingham, Alabama; The Climactic Battle of the Civil Rights Revolution," will provide the evening keynote address entitled "Moon of Alabama: From the Third Reich to Tranquility Base via the Segregated South" at 7:30 p.m. in Roberts Recital Hall on the UAH campus. The symposium is held in recognition of the Apollo 50th anniversary -- the landing of Apollo 11 on the Moon -- as well as the Alabama Bicentennial."

Keith's note: Cool stuff. NASA is gathering noted historians to talk about the history of NASA. Too bad no one outside of Alabama will ever know what is said. NASA sends this release out with less than 3 days notice. No webcast. Nothing on NASA TV. No mention on the NASA HQ calendar. Clueless."
