1969 was a year to remember.Â Fifty years ago humanity celebrated courage, brains, perseverance and the spirit of adventure by sending astronauts to the moon. It was a triumph that kick-started the technological revolution that brought us personal computers, satellite TV and digital everything. What did it take to be an Apollo astronaut? And will we ever feel as good about ourselves again?
Special guests include:
Kevin Fong, Host of new BBC podcast 13 minutes to the Moon
Melanie Vandenbrouck, Curator of The Moon exhibition at the National Maritime Museum
What is a Tortoise ThinkIn?
A ThinkIn is not another panel discussion.Â It is a forum for civilised disagreement. Modelled on what we call a â€˜leader conferenceâ€™ in the UK (or an editorial board in the US), it is a place where everyone has a seat at the table. Itâ€™s where we get to hear what you think, drawn from your experience, energy and expertise. Itâ€™s where, together, we sift through what we know to come to a clear, concise point of view. It is the heart of what we do at Tortoise.
Drinks from 6.00pm, starts promptly at 6.30pm.Â If you are late to a ThinkIn you can â€˜SlinkInâ€™!
If you would like to contribute to this ThinkIn, let us know by emailingÂ firstname.lastname@example.org
We film our Thinkins so we can watch them back, edit the best bits and share them with members who werenâ€™t there in person.
Members can find their ThinkIn booking code in My Tortoise, under My Membership.
