Event Details

Dale J. Kedwards, postdoctoral researcher at the University of Iceland
From Iceland to the Moon: Iceland and the scientific study of the moon, 1634 to Apollo
21 January at 16:30 in the Main Auditorium of Veröld – House of Vigdís, University of Iceland.

No place on Earth has loomed larger in the study of the moon than Iceland. From Johannes Kepler’s speculative description of how the Earth might look when viewed from the moon, to the Apollo moment of the 20th century, this lecture asks what it is about Iceland that unlocks the planetary imagination.
