The Bezos F-1 Apollo Engine Recovery Team was awarded The Explorers Club Citation of Merit on March 15 at ECAD. Accepting the award was founder Jeff Bezos (MN '14). But in the audience were other team and Explorers Club members including David Concannon (FN '96, Expedition Leader), Ken Kamler (FR '84, Expedition Doctor) and Josh Bernstein (FN '04, Expedition Photographer).

Josh Bernstein, David Concannon and Ken Kamler

Come hear an in-depth discussion with the three of them and Legends interviewer Jim Clash (FR'99) about the team's historic find last March. Deep-sea survey and recovery technology was used to locate and retrieve - from 14,000 feet of water off the Florida coast - the center F-1 engine from the Saturn S-IC rocket used to launch the Apollo 11 mission in 1969. A few days later, July 20, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to set foot on the moon.

After the interview, as is customary, Clash will open questions up to audience members.
