MUSEUM OF THE MOON

An out-of-this-world exhibition lands in Sydney.

-

THERE ARE FEW OF US who will ever get to walk on the moon. However, in 2019—the 50th anniversar­y of the Apollo 11 moon landing—sydney-siders will be afforded an intimate brush with space travel. To commemorat­e this milestone, the Powerhouse Museum is launching “Apollo 11”, an exhibition that explores this defining moment in history through more than 200 awe-inspiring objects—from a feed horn used on the CSIRO Parkes Radio Telescope to parts of the Redstone Rocket, which put the first American in space. One of the more exciting inclusions is Luke Jerramʼs iconic “Museum of the Moon”, an immersive audiovisua­l installati­on that is a moon in miniature, with each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture representi­ng five kilometres of the moonʼs surface.

From June 29. Powerhouse Museum, 500 Harris Street, Ultimo. maas.museum
