Fly Me to the Moon
Eric Dahlstrom and Emeline Paat-Dahlstrom of SpaceBase will give a presentation about future opportunities to travel to the Moon.
They will describe what has been learned about the Moon since the Apollo missions, and the government and commercial plans for sending robots and humans to the Moon. The New Zealand companies involved with lunar missions will be described, along with ideas of a future of human bases on the Moon.
The talk ties in with Our Moon: Then, Now and Beyond, a hands-on exhibition on tour from Nelson Provincial Museum.
The talk is free but spaces are limited so please register below if you'd like to attend.
