HRM on the Moon and Across the Globe
When mankind landed on the moon 50 years ago, we reached the pinnacle of more than a decade-long journey in the race to space. While we at the HRM, may not have made it to the moon, the Museum has reached new heights! BBC World News interviewed Manager of Planetarium and Science Programs Marc Taylor and featured the exhibition A Century of Lunar Photography and Beyond in a segment that aired on March 11. In a carefully curated selection of lunar photographs from NASA, the Hastings Historical Society, the Lick Observatory Archive, and private collections, the HRM brings together images from nineteenth-century astronomers, robotic images taken during NASA missions, and photographs taken from lunar orbit.
