Remember the space race between the U.S. and the Soviet Union.?  Remember Sputnik, the U.S. Mercury astronauts and "The Right Stuff?"

In "Rockets Red Glare:  Space Race Classics," a  presentation enhanced with PowerPoint images and film clips and lasting a little over an hour, we'll focus on movies that reflected a generation or two of movies dreaming big and looking skyward.
 

Expect us to explore films like "October Sky," "Apollo 13" and an oddball (but wonderful) entry titled "The Astronaut Farmer" among others.
