La luna e poi? 50 anni dall'allunaggio: storia e prospettive dell'esplorazione spaziale
When: 12/08/2018 - 07/21/2019
There is time until 21 July 2019 to visit La Luna e poi?, the exhibition which opened on 7 December 2018 at Fondazione Museo Civico di Rovereto.
The exhibition – organized by Fondazione Museo Civico di Rovereto with Eclipse Events in Milan, under the patronage of the Italian Space Agency (ASI) and in partnership with SSERVIS (Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute) and NASA, celebrates the 50th anniversary of the first time humans landed on the Moon in July 1969.
The exhibition itinerary starts from the conquest of the Moon, with the Apollo mission and the space race between the two superpowers of the time – the United States and the Soviet Union – to reflect on the future of that outstanding achievement in space exploration and understand future prospects and scenarios.
Along the exhibition itinerary, visitors can go through the lunar experience through simulations based on augmented reality, immersive projections and archival footage.
Virtual reality stations will make it possible to experiment the first space walk in history, made by Russian cosmonaut Leonov in 1965, experience the feeling of being thrown to the Moon on the Saturn V rocket, understand what it means to live and work in a permanent space-house, the ISS, to prepare for the future of space exploration and missions to Mars.
The exhibition is complemented by original documents and objects, flight plans, astronaut equipment, a real lunar meteorite, replicas of the spacesuit of Dave Scott, commander of Apollo 15, and of Sojuz, the Soviet spacecraft.
The exhibition is accompanied by a rich calendar of events.
