“On July 20, 1969, humans walked on another world for the first time in history.”1

The Institute for Radio Astronomy and Space Research (IRASR) at AUT and the Embassy of the United States of America invite you to an exhibition of photos celebrating the 50th anniversary of the moon landing.

Take your time to see a selection of images from the NASA archive, reflect on the achievements and consider the next giant leap.

IRASR is the first (and only) radio astronomical institute in New Zealand. It was founded in 2004 to develop Radio Astronomy and its astronomical and Earth Science applications in New Zealand. AUT’s Warkworth Observatory is linked to New Zealand’s most powerful super computers and has the only radio telescopes in the country, allowing us to see to the edge of the universe.
