Houston, we have a landing. Guest-favorite Moon by Luke Jerram rises again this fall. Created by artist Luke Jerram, this sculpture features 120 dpi detailed NASA imagery of the moon’s surface, using projection mapping. Lunar features, such as Tycho, Apollo 11’s landing spot, and even the elusive “dark side of the moon” are displayed in stunning resolution on this unique sculpture. At an approximate 23 feet in diameter and an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each inch of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 8 miles of the moon’s surface.
Included with regular admission to the permanent exhibit halls and located in the Alfred C. Glassell, Jr. Hall.
