Humans are going back to the Moon and will be staying there for long-term visits.
Join the HR MacMillan Space Centre for a fun evening out and enjoy a planetarium show, a special guest lecture, and some demonstrations, and take a closer look at the proposed Lunar Gateway project. If you can’t make it in person connect through Zoom to watch the lecture portion of the evening (from 8pm-9pm).
The Lunar Gateway is going to be a small space station that will orbit the Moon and serve as a communication hub, science laboratory, living quarters for astronauts who will explore the Moon’s south pole, and be a staging point for future deep space exploration. The space station will be developed by NASA, the European Space Agency (ESA), the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), and the Canadian Space Agency (CSA).
