It is 20 July 1969. Apollo 11’s lunar module Еagle has landed successfully on the Moon. Neil Armstrong is the first human being to set foot on Earth’s natural satellite. It is indeed a giant leap for humanity – this first step ever of man on a space object other than our own planet. Join this exciting journey let by astronomers Dr. Vladimir Bozhilov from the Astronomy Dept. of Sofia University, Tihomir Dimitrov from the Space Academy for Children and Nikola Karavassilev, teacher of physics and astronomy. Together we will go through all the major facts of this historic event. The story will start with the research prior to sending people to the Moon, as well as the studies of what conditions for life it offers. And of course expect to hear all about the Moon Landing itself, and witness the busting of some popular conspiracy theories about it.

Dedicated to the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing.

In partnership with BEA Solutions.
