Fifty years ago, the first humans landed on Earth’s closest neighbour, the moon. We are now entering a new space race to the Moon, to Mars and beyond! Join us for a week-long celebration of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing as we highlight the amazing achievements of the Apollo missions, learn more about our celestial neighbour and look ahead at the future of space exploration. The event runs from 20th July to 26th July.
