Space Lasers!
Teens |Adults


Can you tell how far away the Moon is by shining a laser at it? NASA did just that as part of the Apollo moon programme! Come learn about lasers and optics and how we can use the unique nature of light to advance our understanding of the sun, the moon, the stars - including understanding the size of the whole universe and how far away everything within it is from us.

This activity is included as part of the Our Moon exhibition. The ticketing link on this page will take you to the Our Moon ticketing website. For more information about the Our Moon exhibition, click the link in the related events section below.

Children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult. Children under the age of 2 are free.
