At the moment we are as close to the moon as we will ever be, giving or taking 50,000 km. Of course, a telescope will bring you a bit closer, so to speak, but instead of jumping on a space shuttle, your moon dreams will stay that way – dreaming. But there is a compromise: an exhibition about art and science that & # 39; Museum of the Moon & # 39; and hit Australia in December.
Created by artist Luke Jerram, Museum of the Moon is a replica of the earth's celestial satellite, 7 m in diameter (scale of about 1: 500,000), made from high-resolution NASA images.
According to the website, every inch is equal to 5 km.
At the moment it is touring through the United Kingdom, the exhibition opens on Scienceworks in Melbourne on 1 December and remains a fixed value until 28 April 2019. If it seems a bit familiar, it brought a short visit to the Gold Coast for the Commonwealth Games 2018.
The list of tour dates ends with Scienceworks, so until now, unannounced visits to other cities are not excluded. But for now, if you want to watch it, make sure you're in or around Melbourne in the first part of 2019.[Museum of the Moon, via BGR]
