LUNAR MODULE CEREMONY
We have invited various model makers to reconstruct “The Eagle”. But will she fly? “You ve got a bunch of guys about to turn blue!”
The Mercury Seven a DJ team brought together from a rigorous selection process of clinical, endurance and psychological testing. Who will be first in orbit: Kelvin Brown, Graham Massey, Andy Votel, LA77? Only four survived.
RECLAIM THE MOON
Aware of the fact that NASA’s free footage has been used to death in trippy visuals from the 1960s through to the present day, we will celebrate its overuse by using it to death. It’s all we’ve got left!
