From Pittsburgh to the Moon
December 15, 2022 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Mike Hennessy, Manager of Learning & Programs at the new Moonshot Museum, will discuss Pittsburgh’s contributions to the future of space exploration. Meet the fleet of robotic landers and rovers, under construction on Pittsburgh’s Northside, that will return America to the lunar surface. Using astronomy visualization software, explore lunar craters, mountains, and “seas.” View real data from the lunar surface with 3D glasses! Explore the predictive power of science fiction in shaping visions for future lunar settlements.
The newly opened Moonshot Museum is the only museum in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to focus exclusively on space exploration. It offers an unprecedented opportunity to get up close to the workings of the 21st century space industry.
