Celebrate the anniversary of the first Moon walk by visiting historic landings sites, including that of Apollo 11. Explore where future missions may land like the location of China’s potential colony on the Moon! We will then return home and see the Earth, through the latest data and satellite imagery with Carter Emmart.

Carter Emmart, the Museum's director of astrovisualization, has been involved in all five of the Museum’s Space Shows, four of which are now playing in planetariums all over the world. Emmart was one of the original Museum team members on the NASA-funded Digital Galaxy Project that helped redefine how a planetarium theater can present science to the public through immersive data visualization.
