Join Astrophysicist Ian Hall FRAS and 12 year old TAS Academy student Elsie Dennis (Friday talks only) for a storytelling journey about our cosmic companion

How and when was the Moon formed and why does it orbit the Earth? How does it affect us? What is our relationship with the Moon and how was this changed by the NASA Apollo missions of the 1960’s? What will our future relationship with the Moon be like with the commencement of the NASA Artemis missions and who might be the next person to walk there?
