On 20th July 2019 the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing will be celebrated. During the Apollo 11 mission in 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were the first humans to land on the moon and millions of television viewers around the world were watching live.
Our speakers bring the fascination of space up close and bring the adventure of space travel to your event.

The Eurofighter pilot Nicola Baumann became known throughout Germany as a participant in the selection process of the privately financed initiative "Die Astronautin" (The Astronaut), which for the first time would like to send a German female astronaut into space. Flying and the universe are the passion of our speaker, who shows in her inspiring lectures that you can realize your dreams if you believe in yourself.
