In The Steps of Apollo

All Day

from the first moon landing to the Universe beyond…

NMSW, Sound World (our sister music and education charity) and We The Curious are creating an extraordinary new show, marking the 50th anniversary of the first manned flight to the moon and exploring the future of space travel.

The Milky Way

The planetarium (a state-of-the-art, 3-D facility) will create bespoke visuals depicting five separate journeys through different parts of the solar system, galaxy & universe, while Sound World and NMSW will commission five leading composers to write new works to accompany these journeys. The journeys will be interleaved with short, informative lectures on physics and astronomy.

The stunning visuals provided by the planetarium, the exceptional quality of the music and the expertly written and delivered lectures will combine to produce a unique, awe-inspiring show that is firmly grounded in real science.

Following the première showing at We The Curious, the production will be available for use at planetaria across the UK and beyond. An STFC funded outreach project will also see the show touring the region’s schools and community centres with the Explorer Dome mobile planetarium.
