The way we view the Moon Landing is about to change, thanks to an upcoming event in Batemans Bay. This is your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear JoAnn share her amazing story of her experiences at the Launch Control Center for Apollo 11 Mission and First Human Landing on the Moon in 1969.
JoAnn Morgan began her illustrious space career in the summer of 1958 and was the very first female engineer at Kennedy Launch Control Center for Apollo 11 Mission and the first human moon landing on 16 July 1969.
Proud to be the first female to work on the Space Program, JoAnn recalls, “Kennedy Space Center had an environment that allowed women to thrive. There were no dull days. I learned something from every experience.”
JoAnn was pictured in U.S. national magazines in the 1960’s as the only female on the Apollo launch team in the Firing Room among hundreds of men. She is the recipient of numerous prestigious awards including 2 meritorious awards from President Bill Clinton, in 1995 and 1998.
