Meeting/Talk
"To the Moon and Back"
by Prof. Martin Hendry from Glasgow University.
RGC, Aberdeen, 7 pm
(Directions to RGC)

Join us for this fascinating talk celebrating this year’s fiftieth anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission, as well as the formation of AAS. Join University of Glasgow astronomer Martin Hendry on a voyage of discovery as he explores the science and technology behind Neil Armstrong’s giant leap for humankind. And if you’ve ever wondered about the (surprisingly persistent) claims that the Moon landings were faked, prepare for some debunking fun as Martin casts a critical eye over the most popular conspiracy theories – before looking ahead to the exciting future for human space exploration.
