"Moon" by Luke Jerram Special Exhibition

Houston, we have a landing. On July 20, 1969, the Apollo 11 Lunar Lander touched down on the moon, heralding astronauts like Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin as the first humans to successfully accomplish a lunar landing. In honor of the 50th anniversary of this moon-mentous occasion, the Houston Museum of Natural Science is bringing the moon to Houston like never before!

Created by artist Luke Jerram, this sculpture features 120 dpi detailed NASA imagery of the moon’s surface, using projection mapping. Lunar features, such as Tycho, Apollo 11’s landing spot and even the elusive “dark side of the moon” are displayed in stunning resolution on this unique sculpture. At an approximate 23 feet in diameter and an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each inch of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 42 feet of the moon’s surface.

Included with regular admission to the permanent exhibit halls and located in the Alfred C. Glassell, Jr. Hall!
