The Aero­nau­ti­cal So­ci­ety of Mauritius (AeSM) and the Ra­jiv Gandhi Sci­ence Cen­tre hosted re­cently an event to cel­e­brate the 50th an­niver­sary of the suc­cess­ful voy­age of Apollo 11. Air Mauritius sup­ported the event which was fol­lowed en­thu­si­as­ti­cally by stu­dents and or­gan­i­sa­tions such as the Em­bassy of the United States of Amer­ica, the Royal Aero­nau­ti­cal So­ci­ety (RAeS), the Space engi­neer­ing com­pany SpaceLand Italia, the Bri­tish Coun­cil, the Mauritius Re­search and In­no­va­tion Coun­cil, the As­tron­omy So­ci­ety (Mauritius) and the sci­ence group Cafe Sci­en­tifique.

The event planned in two ses­sions with var­i­ous talks and pre­sen­ta­tions, aimed at im­prov­ing the ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the value of aero­nau­tics and as­tro­nau­tics among the ci­ti­zens of Mauritius. The trib­ute to Neil Arm­strong, Buzz Aldrin and the

NASA team was a suc­cess dur­ing the cel­e­bra­tion which drew a very large num­ber of mem­bers of the AeSM.
