workshop_thumbs_spaceGoing back in time, this workshop uses the real life experience of Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins and the Apollo 11 mission as its focus.  We explore the background to the mission (and the race to get there first), look at the construction of the rocket and re-live the preparations, training and key events of the first moon landing in 1969.  We re-enact blast off and the high risk landing.  We discover how different the moon is to earth and follow the routine experiments that were actually done by the team to take back to the scientists on earth.  Finally we return and look at the legacy of this defining moment in space travel.
