Pentameters and Prosodies: Poetry across Periods and Places
Open March 1, 2019 – April 30, 2019
Monday - Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Poetry expresses our emotions, desires and perceptions in a way that is deeply inspirational and profoundly authentic. From Shakespeare’s sonnets to the yearnings of a former slave in the 1700s to the vibrant verses of the 20th century, human beings have taken this uniquely human expression and made it an important part of our existence. Come and see some of the best examples of artistic expression from the Noel Collection.
The U.S. Moon Landing Program: Personal Remembrances of the NASA Manned Spacecraft Center During This Historic Era
Presented by Jerry McLarty, Ph.D., LSU Health Sciences Center
April 24, 2019
Third Floor, Noel Memorial Library
Open to the Public
Free of Charge
2019 is the 50th anniversary year of the historic first manned landing on the moon. The presenter, Dr. McLarty, was fortunate to have worked at the NASA facility in Houston during the lunar missions. His evolving roles as a student, a laboratory technician and an engineer allowed him a close-up view as both a participant and observer of events during that unique, exciting and historic era. He will describe his encounters with the astronauts, the fantastic scientific resources at the center, the limitations of our technology at that time and the enormity of the technical difficulties that had to be overcome. He will also describe a behind the scenes look at what happened during the first mission to go around the moon and back.
