Movie – “First Man” A look at the life of the astronaut, Neil Armstrong, and the legendary space mission that led him to become the first man to walk on the Moon on July 20, 1969.

Talk – “The Future of Lunar Exploration” Next year it will be fifty years since Neil Armstrong took his ‘one small step’. In this short talk, Carolin will look at the prospects for future lunar exploration. We live in an era when several countries have already embarked on programmes that should ultimately return humans to the Moon. What are the challenges inherent in this ambition? What are the stages of lunar exploration? And most importantly, why should we venture back to the Moon – what is the science that can be achieved: of the Moon, from the Moon, and on the Moon?

Speaker – Prof Carolin Crawford Dr Carolin Crawford is the Public Astronomer at the Institute of Astronomy at Cambridge University, and a Fellow of Emmanuel College. Originally an observational astronomer with a special interest in the largest galaxies in the Universe, her research was carried out alongside – and later eclipsed by – a growing role in the public communication of science. Carolin can now often be found discussing astronomical matters with a wide variety of audiences, including on both national and local radio. She runs the Astronomy outreach programme at Cambridge, including weekly public open evenings every Wednesday through the winter season.
