Future Moon

Future Moon honors the Apollo astronauts who first landed on the Moon on July 20, 1969, and the children of today that may return to the Moon by 2020. Working with NASA’s Johnson Space Center, the Planetarium staff has created a realistic voyage to the Moon narrated by Walter Cronkite. Watch the violent collision that created our Moon billions of years ago, join Apollo astronauts as they explore the lunar surface, and hop on board a translunar craft for a journey to your Moon base of tomorrow.

The Museum received funding support from Lockheed-Martin Company in the production of Future Moon.
