To The Moon and Back Again

Tuesday 18th June 2019 from 18:00pm to 20:00pm

Dynamic Earth

Holyrood Road, Edinburgh, EH8 8AS


It's our nearest celestial neighbour, but only 24 humans have ever made the epic voyage to the Moon and back. With the help of astronomy experts Alastair Bruce, Martin Black, William D. Taylor from the Royal Observatory Edinburgh, celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Moon landings in our ShowDome. A very general guide on the 'what', the 'where' and the 'how' of visiting our nearest neighbour. Some Lego may be involved too... Then sit back, relax with some free popcorn and experience the moon landings in spectacular 360⁰ with our new movie CAPCOM GO!
