On December 17, 2019, Astromaterials Research and Exploration Science (ARES) team member Ben Feist shared the Apollo in Real Time website.  This site brings together audio, transcripts, video, and imagery enabling the public to experience Apollo missions as they occurred ~50 years ago. This event reached ~115 participants across 25 states and Mexico.

Numerous Science Activation Team Member target audiences including Solar System Ambassadors, Librarians, Museum Alliance folks, Night Sky Network folks, and other informal educators participated and indicated they will share the information and resource with members of the public they connect with.

Feedback: "What I liked most: Gaining an appreciation for the incredible value of this contribution to preserving the historical record for present and future generations."
