Arriving on Midsummer’s Day, this giant inflatable moon will fill the Nexus Hall at CIT to coincide with the International Space University’s 30th Annual Space Studies Programme (SSP17) which will be hosted by CIT from June 26th – August 25th, as well as celebrating the magic of Midsummer. An internationally touring work measuring seven metres in diameter, the installation features detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. People of all ages are invited to bathe beneath the moonlight and experience an atmospheric soundtrack created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning composer, Dan Jones. As part of the Space Studies Programme, one of the first people to walk on the moon, Dr Buzz Aldrin, will give a public talk in front of the installation on Tuesday June 27th.
