Up Close with an Expert - All About the Moon

February 15 2020
10 a.m. - 12 p.m.


With Olivier Hernandez, astrophysicist and director of the Planétarium Rio Tinto Alcan.

Only a few men have set foot on the Moon. What have we learned from this exploration in the past 50 years? How goes the rest of the story? China, India and the United States want to write the next chapter in human space exploration by sending the first woman to the Moon by 2024. Another major project: setting up a permanent platform orbiting the Moon. Going back to the Moon to stay, mission possible? An exclusive conference presented for the first time and a unique opportunity to lay your eyes on real lunar meteorites.
