Are you looking to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo missions that landed on the Moon? Minnesota author and journalist Nancy Atkinson takes a new and different look at the Apollo program in her book, "Eight Years to the Moon: Apollo 11". Atkinson shares the behind-the-scenes stories from 60 unsung Apollo engineers and scientists, including some from Minnesota, who contributed to successfully landing humans on the Moon-in what President Kennedy called "the most hazardous and dangerous and greatest adventure on which humankind had ever embarked." From 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
