Barry has been running his own Mergers and Acquisitions business for the past 21 years but has always had a passion for all things ‘Space’ and particularly the ‘Apollo Space Program’; He can remember from when he was a small boy the excitement of man landing on the Moon in 1969. This has stayed with him all these years and until he started working for himself, he was able to put together his passion, and was able to build and present a wonderful PowerPoint presentation of the Apollo Story.

To complement the PowerPoint presentation, Barry has used all sorts of material from covers, stamps, photos, postcards, mission patches, film clips, and even pieces from the actual Apollo spacecraft themselves. The presentation does cover a lot of ground but it goes very quickly as there are a lot of film clips, some with music, including a couple of exciting simulation videos. Listed below are the two halves of the presentation and their content. This will give a good idea of the presentation and what to expect.
