Science Museum Lates

This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 31st Jul 2019

We’ll be marking the 50th anniversary of Armstrong and Aldrin’s famous first steps on the Moon with a special Space Lates, giving visitors the unique opportunity to celebrate the momentous anniversary surrounded by real space technology that played a part in the 1969 Apollo missions.

Bringing the Moon landings to life will be the very Command Module that took the Apollo 10 astronauts into the Moon’s orbit in a dress rehearsal for the later mission that would land the first humans on its surface.

Join us as TV Presenter Dallas Campbell and a panel of experts debunk some common Moon landing conspiracy theories and discover what’s next for human space exploration with scientist Niamh Shaw as she tells us about her simulated mission to the Red Planet.

Catch a glimpse of first Briton in space Helen Sharman’s Sokol emergency spacesuit before taking your own giant leap in a replica from the European Space Agency or discover real Apollo and ESA mission patches before designing your own in a patch-making workshop.

Grow your own rocket (leaves), learn to mix your own space cocktails or practise your moonwalk at our intergalactic silent disco where you can rock with a Moon rock brought back by the Apollo 15 crew.

All this and much more, including the out-of-this-world VR experience, Space Descent VR with Tim Peake tracing an astronaut’s journey back from the International Space Station.

Cost: Free of Charge
