This Easter our egg will be Apollo shaped with a BRAND-NEW Planetarium show!
The Apollo space programme is one of the greatest achievements of humankind. It saw one giant leap in not only exploration, but also science that has impacted on our lives more often than we realise.
Thirty-two astronauts were assigned to fly in the Apollo manned lunar landing program. Twenty-four of them, flying on nine different missions, reached an orbit around the Moon and twelve stepped onto the lunar surface.
Come and discover what it took to get there and what it will take to go back.
Apollo 9: Around the Moon: From big bangs to faecal bags, this explosive presentation will use rocket science and our artefact collection to highlight how humankind landed on the Moon
Build a Lunar Module: Can you find the perfect landing site on our giant map of the Moon?
Build a Moon Orbiter: Come and construct your own Lunar Module Orbiter.
