Where were you when Apollo 11 landed on the moon? When the world held its breath for the crew of Apollo 13? Maybe you only learned about these in a book or a movie.

Bill Weppner was at the heart of it all as a NASA Flight Controller from 1969-1972, and he’s coming to Mount St. Mary to tell his stories on December 7 at 6:30 p.m.

Weppner, brother of the late Mary Weppner Van Allen ’50 and a long-time benefactor of MSM, is eager to share his experiences with the MSM community.

“In ten to fifteen years, there will be no one around to talk about their Apollo experiences,” Weppner explained. “So I’ll take my story anywhere, to any audience, reminding folks that if there were 100 flight controllers, there are 99 other stories.”

All MSM alumnae and their families are invited to this free talk in the Mount St. Mary Auditorium, being held as part of our STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) Speaker Series.
