George Clooney and NASA veterans joined OMEGA at Kennedy Space Center to pay tribute to the 50th anniversary of the first lunar landing. The gathering of greats at Cape Canaveral in Florida brought actors and astronauts together to celebrate the world-changing Apollo 11 mission and to raise glass to the OMEGA Speedmaster: the first watch worn on the Moon.
After a day of discussions on a range of space-related subjects – including “Pushing at the Limits” and “The Moonwatch: Then and Now” – media and VIP guests enjoyed a “Golden Moments” dinner, attended by George Clooney, Amal Clooney, Charlie Duke and Thomas Stafford.
The mood was light and the memories flowed freely as the astronauts shared compelling stories about the challenges they faced to ensure the Apollo project was a success. Though a huge star in his own right, OMEGA Ambassador George Clooney was clearly in awe of his boyhood heroes and made sure their extraordinary achievements were the prime focus of the event.
Also in attendance at both the daytime talks and “Golden Moments” celebratory dinner were Astronaut and artist Nicole Stott, NASA pilot and ISS commander Terry Virts, ESA astronaut and NASA veteran Jean-François Clervoy, and former NASA engineer and the man behind the Moonwatch, Jim Ragan.
