Giant Leaps - MIT's Role in the Apollo Project

What is the legacy of the Apollo program, and what can we learn from it to help us confront the scientific and engineering challenges of our own time? This short film kicked off the "Giant Leaps" Symposium commemorating the 40th anniversary of the first moon landing. The symposium was organized by the MIT Aeronautics and Astronautics Department, and held at MIT on June 11, 2009. Shown again at AeroAstro's 2014 Centennial Symposium as an introduction to the Apollo panels.
