50 Years after Apollo Landing, Moon Mysteries Linger

KCBS Radio In Depth
Friday, July 19th
This weekend marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing, the first time humankind stepped foot on the moon.

Even 50 years later the historic feat stands as a monument to American perseverance and technological ingenuity, but while those brave astronauts were up there, they were doing more than just planting flags: they were also getting some important science done as well.

On this edition of KCBS In Depth, we mark the moon landing anniversary by holding a conversation on lunar science to find out what we've learned so far and what future missions to the moons still could teach us. 

Host: KCBS Radio Reporter Keith Menconi 

Guest: Andrew Fraknoi, emeritus chair of Foothill College’s Astronomy Department, who currently teaches at the Fromm Institute at the University of San Francisco
