Astronaut Sam Bell has a quintessentially personal encounter toward the end of his three-year stint on the Moon, where he, working alongside his computer, GERTY, sends back to Earth parcels of a resource that has helped diminish our planet’s power problems.
After the film, join Rob Morris, Assistant Education Manager at the Clark Planetarium, for a discussion of why we should go back to the Moon. Morris will explore the scientific and economic advantages of establishing a lunar outpost and how the Moon could aid us in future exploration of the Solar System.
This film is recommended for mature audiences.
