Dear Science Freaks,
If you are available, please join me on this very interesting talk about the current moon plans from NASA. This is interesting, since there seems to be a new race evolving to the moon just 50 years after the first manned landing.
China landed unmanned on the “dark side of the moon” most recently, not only Pink Floyd fans know the meaning of this special, for Earth spectator’s invisible side of the moon, but this activity also sparked new plans to build manned bases on the moon for scientific and military purposes. In this context this talk will be interesting, how NASA will be able to leverage from their existing know how and experience having landed on the moon half a century ago.
I got this invitation as science member of the Natural History Museum and can take a couple of people with me. The entrance is free and the talk is in English.
P.S.: please be aware that due to monument protection law NO air condition is available in the museum, so take something to drink and be prepared, if you can’t stand the heat. Actually its much healthier without AC, I prefer it this way, sometimes you can skip the sauna session afterwards.
