Futuramic Tool and Engineering was proud to host a special preview screening of The Last Man on the Moon at Emagine Palladium Theatre in Birmingham, Michigan on March 2. The documentary details Astronaut Eugene Cernan’s two moon missions and the success and failure associated with space exploration.
Additional sponsors included Aerojet Rocketdyne, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Orbital ATK, and Million Air; all of which are integral contractors for NASA’s Space Launch System, touted as what will be NASA’s most powerful rocket ever built.
Moviegoers were able to revisit the Apollo missions with the spaceman himself and enjoyed a Q&A session with Cernan, conducted by fellow retired astronaut and vice president of Orbital ATK, Charles Precourt.
The event, championed by Futuramic in Detroit, illustrates the connection between the company and city and their unique ability to influence innovation and exploration. Futuramic has been providing engineering, fabrication, machining, certification, and installation services to the aerospace, aircraft, military, defense and automotive industries since 1955.
Among other guests of honor, an Apollo Edition Ford Mustang was on display and donated to benefit the Experimental Aircraft Association’s youth aviation education programs; inspiring exploration for future generations.
