Moon Mysteries – a celebration of our nearest celestial neighbour
August 9, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm AEST
No celestial object is more assured of a place in the hearts of humans than the Moon, but the sentiment ought to extend beyond mere romantic fervour. Undying gratitude is perhaps more appropriate, since it’s entirely possible that without the Moon, intelligent life might never have evolved on our planet. This is just one of the intriguing insights that current scientific research has uncovered.
In this 50th anniversary year of the Apollo lunar landings, Professor Fred Watson explores the history of our understanding of the Moon from the earliest times through to the space age, and highlights some of the questions that today’s investigations into our natural satellite are addressing.
