On July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 touched down on the lunar surface, safely delivering Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin — the first humans to land on the moon. The Swiss Solar Wind Composition Experiment, manufactured by the University of Bern and the Swiss National Science Foundation, was the only non-American experiment to be part of the Apollo landings. Where do we stand after 50 years, and where are we headed? Gather with astronauts, scientists, and artists to discuss the past, the future, and our inspiration for the unknown space.

Program & Speakers TBA. 

This event is a collaboration of the Consulate General of Switzerland’s Swiss Touch campaign with swissnex San Francisco and the Exploratorium.
