Vince Houghton Presents: Nuking the Moon

The Secret History of History

Rendezvous Info

Tickets: Free! Reservations Required RSVP HERE


In 1958, the US Air Force nuked the moon as a show of military force. In 1967, the CIA sent live cats to spy on the Soviet government. In 1942, the British built a torpedo-proof aircraft carrier out of an iceberg. Of course, none of these things ever actually happened. 

Join Spy Museum historian Vince Houghton as he launches his book Nuking the Moon which details some of the most glorious missions—born of innovation and desperation—that never made it off the drawing board.  He’ll share a few of his favorite follies from the world of espionage and what he thinks they tell us about twentieth-century history, the art of spycraft, military strategy, and famous figures like JFK, Castro, and Churchill.  

Nuking the Moon will be available for sale and signing at the event.

The event is free, but an rsvp is required.
