Bob Thirsk for eSpace Exhibition

July 23, 2009

Human beings feel the need to expand beyond frontiers and explore new territories. Think only of the great discoveries and innovations, explorations of unknown lands, and, in the 20th century, the beginnings of space exploration.

In 1969, an American astronaut took the first step on the Moon. On the 40th anniversary of this remarkable event, we invite you to enter eSpace. This exhibition brings together two different yet intimately linked universes: the real and the imaginary. A rarely before seen selection of objects, toys, cartoons and an original space suit from the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum of Washington will spark the imagination of young and old alike. Interactive terminals and video excerpts also come together to make of eSpace a truly unique experience.
