Powerhouse Museum: “Apollo 11”
The Powerhouse Museum’s “Apollo 11” exhibition explores this defining moment in history, its lasting impact on science, society and design, and the crucial role Australia played in transmitting the famous footage.
Over 200 objects are on display, including a feed horn CSIRO used at the Parkes Radio Telescope to receive some of the first images of the moonwalk for broadcast around the world, and parts of the Redstone Rocket that put the first American into Space.
In a new virtual reality experience,visitors can watch the Moon landing from the unique perspective of Michael Collins, the third astronaut who remained in orbit aboard the Command Module. An interactive arcade game, a life-size replica of the Mercury Capsule, scientific models and video footage also bring the mission to life.
