Planetarium Presentation: “Back To The Moon For Good”

This is an exciting, education show narrated by award-winning actor Tim Allen. The program begins with a tour through the history of lunar exploration, tracing back to the 1960s and 1970s. We hear from teams racing to land a robotic spacecraft on the moon.  The audience is taken on a successful launch, landing, and tour of the lunar surface.  The show ends with an enticing visualization of a future settlement on the moon.
The stunning visuals and compelling narrative of the show explain the importance of the Google Lunar XPRIZE in encouraging today's space entrepreneurs and innovators to collaborate toward building a new space economy while inspiring the next generation to "shoot for the moon." Featuring SCC Science Chair & Physics instructor Matt Cass introducing the film and leading a discussion on where the upcoming administration might want to redirect NASA's missions.
This planetarium program was supported by grant funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the federal Library Services and Technology Act as administered by the State Library of North Carolina, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.
This discussion series was funded by Pushing the Limits which is a reading, viewing and discussion program for adults in communities served by rural libraries, made possible by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
