Royal Institution Event - Public Agenda

Lunar Mission One - Royal Institution Event Public Agenda

On Saturday 30th May 2015 we will be hosting our inaugural backer event at the Royal Institution in London. Mission Control: Building the World’s Biggest Space Club is the next step in the Lunar Mission One venture that gives you the chance to meet each other and the team behind the project. On this day you can directly engage with the project, contribute ideas to its development and volunteer to participate in making it a success.

Throughout the event there will be talks from leading scientists and ‘lunar missions labs’ sessions led by members of the project teams, alongside other friends of the project, where everyone will be invited to contribute to discussions on the project’s many themes.

Hosted at one of London’s most iconic scientific institutions and open to all Lunar Mission One backers and their guests, this event is set to be an extraordinary day.

We are excited to be able to release some more details about what to expect from the day, the format and some information on the talks that we hope you are as excited as us to hear.

Tickets for the event are going fast, but you can still purchase one online here. There will also be a limited number of tickets available at the door on the day.
