The Houston Chronicle reports that Apollo 11 “computress” Mary Ellen Shirley on Wednesday joined a group of visitors to Space Center Houston “celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 crew’s return to Earth.” At the event, Shirley “clapped along with a Beatles tribute band, while those around her danced and twirled tiny American flags above their heads.” Visitors “were regaled with tales of Apollo myths, such as UFO sightings, by a space historian and learned about the fears American officials had at the time regarding ‘moon bugs.’” (Image: Apollo 11 Comes Home | NASA)
