Opening Reception – From The Moon: Mapping & Exploration
Saturday, November 12, 2011
2nd Floor, School of Sciences and Mathematics, 202 Calhoun St.
Man and the Moon: Mapping and Exploration addresses our visual perceptions of the Moon, from Earth and from space, and demonstrates how advances in optical technologies have increased our understanding over time.
From Galileo’s first observations to today’s powerful telescopes, this exhibition will include a broad range of man’s attempts at mapping and understanding lunar history. A key component will be NASA’s documentation of the Apollo lunar landings as well as current research and missions. An educational program will provide teachers and students with interactive exhibits and lesson plans, with a special Moon Fest event to be held at the New Science Center Building on November 12, 2011. The exhibition will be on view through March 2012.
