"You know someplace where humans have been already?

The Moon.

Someplace else we've been? Stonehenge. Do we stop going?

No, they’re both still awesome." - BestTechie

This Hangout will be celebrating the 45th anniversary of Apollo 11 ( #Apollo45 ) by looking forward---what are the Apollo sites like today? What could be in store for their future? What was it like to be involved with Apollo, and what does it mean for space going forwards?

Robert Brand of +Team Stellar, an Apollo insider, and Google Lunar XPRIZE Judge Derek Webber, a charismatic expert on Apollo legacy, will be discussing the past with host Dr. Pamela Gay as we shed light on adventures for the future.

I am very excited, especially because so many Google Lunar teams are so close to going back to the moon. A special shout out to +Astrobotic who I have money on to win ;)

The Moon---as art:
 
Art will guide us...
Psychedelic artwork, or the surface of the moon? Why choose when you can have both at the same time? The Lunar Reconnoissance Orbiter team collected the most artistic, abstract data from the Moon, and I'm loving it. This is true Moon Art, loaded with science.

A great video---and an important flight!:

We've been to the Moon, but not affordably. Tech like this is an important step to setting up residence on Mars, the Moon, and elsewhere!

From +Virgin Galactic's successful test flight yesterday:
 
Yesterday's successful WhiteKnightTwo flight was the first with a 100% Virgin Galactic crew, including all of the pilots, ground crew, and mission controllers. Some members of that great team are pictured here, along with a shot from the flight itself.
