Morehead Planetarium publishes book about former director who trained NASA astronauts in Chapel Hill


The Morehead Planetarium is publishing a book! It's a children's book about one of the earliest leaders of the planetarium: Tony Jenzano. Jenzano is the man who brought NASA astronauts to Chapel Hill; he trained 11 of the 12 men who have walked on the surface of the moon--including NASA legends Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Jim Lovell.
