To celebrate the 50th anniversary year of the first Moon landing we’re reuniting some of the team behind this historic achievement.

In the 50th anniversary year of the first Moon landing, the National Space Centre, in collaboration with Nick Howes, is reuniting some of the team behind this historic achievement. Twelve humans stood on the lunar surface, but it took many thousands of scientists, engineers, mathematicians, makers, creators and thinkers to get them there.

In a celebration of these achievements, there will be opportunities to meet and discover the amazing stories of:

Manfred “Dutch” von Ehrenfried

Gerry Griffin

Sy Liebergot

Bill Moon

Culminating in a screening of “Mission Control: The Unsung Heroes of Apollo” in the Sir Patrick Moore Planetarium, this really will be one giant leap for mankind.

Q&A in the Sir Patrick Moore Planetarium

Take a seat in the UKs largest planetarium for a hosted Q&A with our special Apollo guests.

Autograph, Photograph and Book Signing

An opportunity to have a photograph with our guests or purchase an autograph or signed book.

£15 per autograph, £30 per photograph – books vary (purchase on the day only)

Apollo 10 Anniversary Dinner

Three course dinner in the heart of our galleries, followed by a Q&A session, prior to a screening of Mission Control: The Unsung Heroes of Apollo in the Sir Patrick Moore Planetarium.

£50 per person (BOOKING ESSENTIAL)

The Legacy of Apollo

The Apollo program was designed to land humans on the Moon and bring them safely back to Earth, but what did the Apollo missions give to humankind, how did they come about and what have we learnt in 50 years since humankind first left the bounds of low Earth orbit?

Nick Howes, Director of Aerolite Meteorites and freelance science author, takes us on an entertaining journey through these and other thought-provoking questions.

The Hunt for Snoopy

In 1969, the Apollo 10 crew ejected the lunar module “Snoopy” from the CSM into a heliocentric orbit. Nick Howes, along with legendary flight controllers and astronauts from the Apollo program, and “astrogator” Mike Loucks have spent a number of years, in a calculated hunt for the errant lunar module. This talk explains the background, the project plan and the very latest and exciting results of their search.
