Ben Feist, a local from here in Toronto, creator of Apollo17.org, and part of the team who made the 2019 documentary Apollo 11, will take us through his latest project, Apollo 11 in Real Time, a website that presents the entire historical mission archive in a multimedia experience and contains over 11,000 hours of mission control audio that hasn't been heard since 1969. Ben will also talk about his new job at NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, where he is applying new ideas to mission data management and visualization based on his historical work.
