      'Kuiper and Apollo: A Talk on the Occasion of the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Landing'

      Please join University Libraries Special Collections for a talk by University of Arizona Press author Derek Sears on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. In this talk, Sears will present his biography "Gerard P. Kuiper and the Rise of Modern Planetary Science," which describes the life of a man who lived through some of the most dramatic events of the 20th century and ended up creating a new field of scientific research – planetary science. As NASA and other space agencies explore the solar system, they take with them many of the ideas and concepts first described by Gerard P. Kuiper. We welcome you to join us for this exciting and timely lecture.
