The Exhibition

While millions dream of traveling to the Moon, only twelve humans have walked on the Moon. For now, the next best thing is NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera and the incredibly high-resolution images it transmits back to Earth.

 

“Barnstorming the Moon,” a collection of images, some of them never printed before, conveys the beauty and grandeur of the lunar landscape, highlights ongoing science discoveries and gives a sense of the history of lunar exploration. The exhibition will be carried out in a 20 x 8 x 8 ft container for the duration of the festival. Prints positioned outside the container are original photo prints under acrylic glass, which offers incredible sharpness, brilliant color and can be produced in formats of up to 114 by 71 inches.  Prints on display inside are direct prints on aluminum-dibond that provide an added sense of dimension to the photographs.

 

The Curator

Mark Robinson is a Professor in the School of Earth and Space Exploration at Arizona State University. His research interests are currently focused on the origin and evolution of planetary crusts, including volcanism, tectonism, and regolith development. He is working on the Mars 2020 Rover and is Principal Investigator (PI) of the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC).

The LROC

The LROC imaging systems provide opportunities to map compositional variations of the lunar crust and reveal details of how airless body regoliths (soils) are formed and evolve with time – key knowledge for planning and executing future lunar exploration endeavors.
