In autumn 2018, the DLR_Raumfahrt_Show focused on Alexander Gerst’s horizons mission to the International Space Station. This year, the programme will go ‘one small step’ further: to mark the 50th anniversary of the first Moon landing, we will take viewers on an imaginary trip to the Moon, sharing exciting information about our cosmic companion and this remarkable milestone in the history of space travel, with amazing stage experiments, fascinating videos and hands-on activities for the whole audience. How did the Moon form? How did it get its dark blotches, sometimes referred to as the face of the “Man in the Moon”? And what scientific findings do we owe to the Apollo missions?
+++ Time for “lift-off” to be announced +++
