Zo'n 50 jaar geleden zaten we in een ongelofelijke fase in het maanonderzoek en in de ruimtevaart. We konden al in een baan om de maan komen en waren op weg om ook echt te gaan landen op de maan. Uit eerste hand ervaringen zal onderzoeker Rudolf le Poole een overzicht geven van het ondersteunende onderzoek in die tijd, en van de ontwikkelingen in de ruimtevaart die dat mogelijk maakten.

Four Saturdays full of astronomy

The Leiden Astronomical Student Society 'F. Kaiser 'and the Leiden Old Observatory organise the traditional Kaiser Spring Lectures, the annual series of lectures for the general public. Four experts from both Leiden University and abroad will come to the Old Observatory to give a lecture on a central theme for the promotion of astronomy.

In honour of the 50-year jubilee of the moon landing, the theme this year is 'Back to the Moon'.

Two of these four lectures will be in English.
