Event Description

Exhibit Opening, Saturday, July 20, 2019 – The exhibit “Apollo 50: Small Steps to a Giant Leap,” as featured in the LA Times, will fill our DaVinci’s Garage experimental maker space from July 20 to October 10, 2019. “Apollo 50” allows people to experience the small steps that led to the giant leap of the Moon landings of NASA’s Apollo program. Gain insight about the magnitude of the lunar landings through interactive exhibits that place participants in the seat of Mission Control, exploring the Moon’s surface, feeling a Saturn V rocket launch up-close through VR, experiencing the engineering process, and piloting a lunar lander.

This exhibition is about the most extreme geology field trip ever, and will feature an array of exhibits designed and build by our shop staff of artists, fabricators, and designers, as well as hundreds of hours of volunteer effort by engineers and technicians from the Science Advisory Board. The overarching theme is that, by placing visitors in the action, they see themselves as astronauts, mission controllers, pilots, scientists, and engineers.
