Unlocking the Truth: The Authentication of the JFK Lectern

Discovery Circle members are invited to attend an exciting event highlighting an important figure behind human spaceflight. They will embark on a journey through the conclusive authentication of the famed lectern from which John F. Kennedy delivered his historic moon-shot speech.

These tales will detail how they embarked on a diligent investigation, authentication and restoration process that preserved the lectern’s historical integrity and allowed Space Center Houston the opportunity to present the true story of this remarkable artifact.
