50 years after the moon landing

50 years after the moon landing: a milestone of history celebrates anniversary

The year 2019 is very much about the first moon landing. In keeping with our Apollo and Beyond space flight exhibition, we are honouring the memorable occurrence at an event on 30 May 2019 with Apollo 11 capsule communicator and Apollo 16 moon walker, Charlie Duke. Half a century ago, the first humans landed on the moon. The Apollo 11 space flight with Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins shaped generations and changed the world. Legend, myth and reality – up until the present time, the first moon landing has not only been part of many reports and theories but also a source of inspiration for scientists and fantasists. Events are taking place worldwide on the occasion of the 50th Anniversary. Naturally also here in the Speyer Museum of Technology. We opened Europe's largest space exhibition 10 years ago. More than 600 exhibits, including highlights such as the BURAN Soviet-era space shuttle, an original Soyuz landing capsule and a lunar landscape with a lunar module, space suits and an original moonstone have since thrilled space fans from all over the world. Currently, the exact program details are being fine-tuned. The corresponding information about the event will be available soon.

Symposium on 29 May 2019 in the Technik Museum Speyer only for expert audience who have registered beforehand. Organised by the Lilienthal-Oberth German Society for Aeronautics and Astronautics. More information and contact at: http://50-jahre-mondlandung.de/
