With over 200 objects, Apollo 11 commemorates the 50th Anniversary of the Moon landing. Named after the spaceflight that was the first to land astronauts on the Moon’s surface in 1969, the exhibition explores this defining moment in history, its lasting impact on science, society and design, and the crucial role Australia played in transmitting the famous footage. Key objects on display include items from the Museum’s extensive collection and from around the world: a feed horn used on the iconic CSIRO Parkes Radio Telescope, responsible for receiving some of the first images of the moonwalk for broadcast around the world; parts of the Redstone Rocket that put the first American into Space; and an Olivetti Programma 101 computer, the type used by NASA to calculate the launch and landing.
