To the Moon, From Chapel Hill

Record #:
Until 1975, every American astronaut, including Alan Shepard, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and John Glenn, received training at the Morehead Planetarium on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. There they learned celestial navigation, which was essential should their onboard navigation system fail. Anthony Jenzano, the planetarium's director, was their instructor.
