Kennedy vowed that Americans would land a man on the moon. In 1969 Project Apollo fulfilled its goal of landing astronauts on the moon and returning them safely to Earth. We will provide a brief overview of the space race and Projects Mercury and Gemini before looking in detail at the Apollo program.

On September 9, 1965, Simon Fraser University opened its doors and welcomed its first class of 2,500 students.
