Take a trip to the moon in new film at the National Space Centre Leicester
On 06 April the National Space Centre in Leicester is launching a brand-new planetarium show and you could be one of the first people on the planet to take a seat in the UK’s largest planetarium to see it.
CAPCOM GO! The Apollo Story, celebrates the achievements of the Apollo missions, highlighting what it took to put the first humans on the Moon.
The show tells the amazing story of the Apollo space missions, which are just as important today, as humankind looks to return to the Moon and on to other planets.
CAPCOM GO! has been produced by the award winning NSC Creative, one of the world’s leading planetarium-specialist production companies, with shows screening in over 600 venues in 60 countries.
On the eve of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 10 mission, the National Space Centre is inviting visitors to take a seat in the Sir Patrick Moore Planetarium, the UK’s largest planetarium, to discover how NASA not only landed man on the Moon, but also saw humankind take one giant scientific and technological leap.
Apollo inspired a generation of engineers, mathematicians, human computers and scientists. Paul Mowbray, Director of NSC Creative, said; “What better way to celebrate 50 years since one of the greatest achievements in human history than by introducing a new generation to the immense challenges the team overcame with the aims of inspiring our visitors to become the explorers, designers, engineers, thinkers and dreamers of the future.”
The new show kicks off a full programme of celebrations in the Easter school holiday period. Apollo Easter will see visitors witness explosive presentations, build and land their own Lunar Module and construct a Moon orbiter, as well as take a seat in the Planetarium for this brand-new show.
