History: this week it’s mostly Apollo 11

Summer slows down the history pieces from some sources, but this week everyone is looking back 50 years ago to Apollo 11. A Quebec firm played a part in design and construction of the legs of the Lunar Excursion Module.

The Gazette keeps on with its “through our eyes” feature, which has recently included pieces on Doudou Boicel and the Rising Sun, a look back at the July 1987 cloudburst which drowned the city for a day – a piece of local meteorological history almost as memorable as the ice storm – the start of the Oka crisis and more.
