Dr. William Carpentier
The NASA flight surgeon assigned to the Apollo 11 mission, featured speaker
Carpentier worked closely with the three astronauts during pre-flight training as
well as throughout their post-flight activities, including the dramatic at-sea recovery, the
quarantine period aboard the USS Hornet, and their worldwide tour. He became
well-acquainted with Neil Armstrong and will share some never-before-revealed personal
memories of his interaction with the late astronaut and American hero.

Former astronaut Daniel W. Bursch
(Captain, USN, Ret,)
Speaking on what the Apollo moon landings meant to the U.S. and the world, Bursch was
selected into the astronaut program in January 1990 and became an astronaut in July 1991.
He has been on four space flights and has logged more than 227 days in space. His technical
assignments include: space communicator (CAPCOM) in mission control; chief of astronaut
appearances; and working on controls and displays for the space shuttle and space station in the
Astronaut Office Operations Development Branch.
