The archaeology of Apollo 11

Dr Alice Gorman (Senior Lecturer, Flinders University) 

Humans first set foot on another world 50 years ago when the Apollo 11 mission landed on the Moon. The traces and artefacts astronauts left behind in 1969 are an archaeological record showing how humans adapt to off-Earth environments.

Dr Alice Gorman (aka Dr Space Junk) is an archaeologist who studies orbital debris, planetary landing sites, and terrestrial antennas. Her new book, Dr Space Junk vs the Universe: Archaeology and the Future, was published in April.

Time and date: 7-9pm, Monday 20 May 2019
