The Moon: where memory and ambition take flight! 

On July 20, 2019, join Canadian Space Agency (CSA) astronauts David Saint-Jacques and Robert Thirsk, 50 years after the historic Moon landing, as they reflect on the extraordinary legacy of the Apollo lunar missions and look ahead to Canada’s journey to the Moon – to stay.

David Saint-Jacques (at the Montreal Science Centre) and Robert Thirsk (at the Ontario Science Centre) will connect by video link to discuss the proud history and unfolding future of human space exploration. The discussion will be followed by a question-and-answer period with David Saint-Jacques.
