BRATTLEBORO "Chasing the Moon": Sneak preview of a new PBS American Experience series - Robert Stone's six-hour documentary about the space race, from its earliest beginnings to the monumental achievement of the first lunar landing in 1969 and beyond. In this third segment, "The Big Leap," crowds flood Cocoa Beach in anticipation of the most historic of launches (July 1969). Camped out along the beach and gathered in cars, spectators endured the blistering heat in anticipation. At the same time, civil rights leader Ralph Abernathy led a peaceful protest, criticizing the priorities of the federal government. NASA administrator Thomas Payne received them warmly, noting, "We would like to see you hitch your wagons to our rockets" in making their concerns heard by a national audience. Payne invited Abernathy to the launch site, and the protesters joined the thousands of Americans gathered to see the Saturn V launch Apollo 11 into the atmosphere. 7 p.m. in the Main Reading Room.
