"The Greatest Show on Earth: The Search for the Apollo 11 Tapes”

The following are excerpts from a private email.  It's space related and only of potential interest to those who will be around Houston on the indicated dates. I didn't try to independently confirm the times, etc.   The purpose is "to encourage the NASA release of the already enhanced video from Apollo 11 and promote similar processing of video from other Apollo missions."
Presentations of “The Greatest Show on Earth: The Search for the Apollo 11 Tapes” will be made at Rice University (Tuesday, March 29 @ 400 PM) and at the Lunar & Planetary Institute (Wednesday, March 30 @ 330 PM).

These presentations are open to the public.

[The presenters are Colin Mackellar & John Sarkissian.] Many of you are familiar with Colin from our Apollo 11 anniversary activities. Colin has been a space enthusiast since middle school and is the “Wizard of Oz” of the Honeysuckle Creek website. His day job is an Anglican minister, although he is a degreed geologist.

John is from the CSIRO radio observatory at Parkes, Australia.
