As more of us are home, and many schools will be closed over the next few weeks, Stemettes are joining you online – to keep you inspired, motivated and learning. Each week we’ll run 3 events across Zoom, Google Hangouts and Instagram.
Robert Massey: The Moon
Humans have been fascinated with our nearest heavenly body, the Earth’s Moon, since prehistoric times. 2019 marked 50 years since we set foot on the Moon during the Apollo space missions.
Join astronomer Dr Robert Massey for an illustrated talk about how our obsession with the Moon has manifested itself in the sciences and visual arts, from earliest ritualistic drawings and objects, Romantic symbolism and silent movies, to scientific observation, photography, and space race propaganda.
