. a small step. a giant leap. it was the 1st time a human had set foot on the moon. and mankind had left a footprint in space. these images are reflected in our collective memory. it was far more than a scientific expedition it was the fulfillment of an age old dream of mankind an exhibition project examines the way artists have approached it high heels on the moon still refer at least pointed reference to the under-representation of women in space flight this installation carries a touch of the poet earth's moon earth in 2007 scottish artist katie betters and transmitted beethoven's moonlight sonata in morse code to the moon which stood back

of the space age many artists took a critical perspective on it. others were fascinated by the technology among them british pop artist richard hamilton. doubtless fog he actually sense that this moon landing this spice rice program would very noticeably affect our daily lives inside the concept of streamlining and design for instance or lightweight materials and the miniaturized nation of technology. 969 as soon as they landed the americans planted their flag on the mall a gesture that inspired pop artist and the wall as late as 1987 just before his death. it was billed as a mission for all mankind that heralded in a new era the euphoria spread to countries that had recently thrown off the yoke of

has been found where humankind could live. the moon is no longer an object of fear and designer now it's the earth itself. a big orchestra and plenty of spectacle to celebrate the half. century anniversary of the moon landing. with oscar winning soundtrack composer hans zimmer and steve by one of the world's best guitarists. then brian may astrophysicist and queen's lead guitarist. the concert spectacle opened the stormers festival we met the man who started it all.
12:38 am
really my heroes so i could never never imagine that one day i'm going to put together a festival to bring all these heroes of my childhood all my get together and i feel a part of the festivities that i'm paying tribute to all of that. garrick israelian here next to brian may is a professor of astrophysics native to armenia he launched the stormers festival in 2011 on the canary islands bringing artists together with veteran astronauts and scientists and not just any scientists but such big names as stephen hawking. i think the main goal of stopping this as i say suspicion this is a slide decided me we should create a festival of people out inspired and the one of the race to inspire them is actually to bring these guys to get to have basel 3 on stage with brian may to let people see real heroes and treat them like stars.
12:39 am
the 5th edition of the festival was held in zurich switzerland the idea was to bring star must closer to the center of europe and pay tribute to swiss aerospace research like the solar wind composition experiment developed in bam it was the only non american experiment aboard apollo 11. on the 50th anniversary of the 1st moon landing everything that star must. about the moon and the u.s. apollo missions of the 1960 s. and seventy's. america's goal was to put a human on the moon before the soviet union did. what is the moon's attraction besides the purely physical. the fascination of want it is because you can see everything. about the beach is there and he makes a tree. look at that 1st of all it's beautiful. just being on the moon you use fall in love with it it's our. purpose

build space station. i think has a very special role and he still medically creating making people treat write songs about them and feeling part of could but it's. astronauts have always credited science fiction writers like jules verne with sparking their imaginations and in turn the achievements of spaceflight had inspired art. some astronauts have become artists in their own right but nicole stott who painted watercolors into space not an easy task. water behaves a little bit differently in microgravity than it does down here so i have little floating balls of water that i would use to dip my brush into and i painted a painting based on a picture of probably one of the most beautiful things i saw which was this little chain of islands on the northern coast of venezuela called us rochas and to me i
12:41 am
remember looking out the window at it and it looked like somebody had already like they'd taken a big paint brush and painted this wave on the ocean i think our planet is art i started like looking at earth with this idea of art appreciation you see the universe and it's all it's all that we are and so on all it should be and this thing how did this just happen by accident. this is this the designer i call it god. charles dupes perspective on many things has changed he was 36 years old when he piloted apollo 16 making him the youngest man ever to walk on the moon. he spent a total of some 20 hours there his lunar olympics his attempt to jump as high as possible almost cost him his life. so ever to do anything in space that you had practiced all over to me apollo was a. an adventure in

a technical mission that i had a job to do and i was focused on my own i can't say get more come back i would like to live on the moon forever but certainly stay 2 more hours would have been a great place and come all. back home he was welcomed with accolades but also skepticism even now some conspiracy theorists claim the moon landings were staged on earth were they faked the evidence is overwhelming that we landed on the moon we have. probably 300 kilos of moon rocks that are totally different than rocks the russians knew we went to the moon we want to race with them they tracked this we landed they never said it was a lie they they knew we were on the move and we did it now in terms we went to the moon if you go to fake so do it once and shut up. important to
12:43 am
remember is that the apollo missions had a major political motivation they were expensive risky and always controversial their success gave us modern day heroes though some may see them as american space cowboys the star mystical is yet another tribute to their admirable teamwork and contributions to science and technology and to. among them is brian eno he was awarded the stephen hawking medal at the festival for the release of his legendary $983.00 apollo album. in addition researchers have even named an asteroid after him. somewhere out there a little brian eno is tumbling through space who else can say that about themselves . we met the english musician at a festival for tea and a chat. room toothpaste flavor to.
12:44 am
misty you know how do you remember the moon landing of 969 what did you do back then. i had just left art school and i was living in love the next door to my old painting professor we sat in the kitchen looking at his little television. and it was getting evening and there was a full moon in the sky. that's actually where they are now those people are there and it was an incredible moment with everything contracting into this moment in time and of course i realize that was a very historic point in the history of the human race so although the apollo missions were you know a military technological industrial. thing they were also it was
12:45 am
a piece of art it was this idea. hey we could do this we could make this happen how did it inspire you as an as an artist as a musician i didn't suddenly go and start making space music but i was already working with electronics and electronic instruments that the kinds of sounds that they produced were unearthly i kept finding myself thinking about the universe instead of the earth thinking about you know galaxies and. the emptiness of space for example and i started to think actually most of the universe is silence the only place that there is any. actual noise is on us you need that atmosphere for there to be noise so we are the noise in the universe as far as we know we don't know any other source of noise. it's us just us . but when
12:46 am
you say space the silence how difficult is that then to transform that into music when you say when you put a very large reverberations on the side do you think that sounds so spacey you know there have been all these devices in the history of music called space echo and space chamber but of course in space there's no echo. there's no sound so so we've created a human fantasy about what space is like and all that we know is that it's very big . i started to think that composing making music i should say was such an unusually human function so we do this thing called making music for quite mysterious reasons i think and i think one of the reasons is it's a way of saying i am here.
12:47 am
mankind sexy. to explore space. far away. look. at the senators versus the moon landing was not highly a giant leap for mankind it was also reflected in popular culture shock for example in david kelly song space odyssey it's about a national who ends up drifting in space for. fun to shallow to let it sound you claim that it is a great a little. bit let alone. to what. the song was released days before the start of the apollo 11 mission but the b.b.c. refused to play it until the astronauts had returned safely to worst drug plan to lose the love you love closing
12:48 am
a loophole loose was always inspiration for the song didn't come from the apollo mission from a science fiction film to. stanley kubrick's 2001 a space odyssey. advertisements for the film called it the ultimate trip and probably would probably have a great. it was the light 19 sixty's after all and many young people were experimenting with some proactive drugs. and all this mind team 6 to 9 the woodstock festival took place in the u.s. a key event in the history of popular music and american counter culture. always songs spice order to reach the top 5 on the good cake charts and went. it's

released in 1975 it went to number one the song has been covered by many artists. even in space. control egypt. in 2013 the international space station commander chris hadfield sang a version of the song at the end of his mission hatfield changed the lyrics slightly so that major tom returned to earth safe and sound to. newcastle 11 mission required a massive effort an estimated 400000 people took part in developing the technology of the moon landing had a huge influence on the movies nasa itself delivered spectacular pictures in july
12:50 am
969 shortly before takeoff it was perhaps the greatest human adventure of all time and would be covered on live t.v. like the one you feel as far as responsibilities records a man got on his. that's relatively difficult to answer. a new documentary on apollo 11 features digitally restored footage from nasa as. some of the video has never been seen before. you have to kind of what all down one of the key moments were the moments of humanity that happened what were the things that stood out what really got me was the emotion on their faces you could see the weight of what they were about to do. the film celebrates the heroes of this historic mission. the world of cinema has always been fascinated with the moon french director josh.
12:51 am
yes imagine the moon landing in this film from 1002. the film was a huge success around the world it brought viewers a step closer to the heavens the earth's only satellite a place filled with mystery and unknown dangers we had dreams of adventure could turn into nightmares. in 1929 german director fritz lang portrayed the darker side of the moon mission in this silent film it was considered one of the 1st to reasonably accurate science fiction movies. and other films have been popular since the early days of cinema and still are seen. a new film portrays the triumphs and the tragedies in the life of neil armstrong in
12:52 am
1962 his daughter karen died of a brain tumor when she was just 2 years old. armstrong was devastated by the loss of his daughter. the film includes a scene in which armstrong 7 years later stands in silence on the edge of the moon crater in the film he casts a bracelet with his daughter's name on it into the crater. this was a man who i think was forged for a failure and for loss he was not sort of you know this kind of born icon he was not he was not necessarily the sort of all american hero from the outside he was a human being he was vulnerable women mistakes. later after the astronauts have returned to earth armstrong is shown at the corinth 100 facility the moon mission seems to have changed him and not for the better he's more serious and remote. many other astronauts behave the same way after their missions.
12:53 am
ready ready. the 2011 us canadian film apollo 18 is a fictionalized account of a moon flight that never actually took place. apollo 18 was cancelled by nasa in 1970 but in the film the astronauts are sent to the moon on a top secret mission it ends in disaster when the astronauts are attacked by extra terrestrials left alone in space far away from their home planets they are the most lonely people imagine. they'll will not only replace. the soviet union was justifiably proud of its space program a $27000.00 russian film tells the story of cost may not alex a layoff the 1st man to walk in space leon of left his orbiting capsule on march
12:54 am
18th 1965 and spent 12 minutes floating around outside. by the time he returned to earth soviet space officials had decided that leon of was to be part of moscow's 1st lunar mission but the project was later cancelled. was the moon landing faked a 2002 french mockumentary alleges that renowned director stanley kubrick shot the scenes at a studio acting under orders from the cia the film claims that the idea for faking the landing originally came from president nixon. they became very aware how important the visual spectacle spectacle is going to be at 1st i didn't take it
12:55 am
very seriously but with ford motor. that it kept growing our border and our own ben one of the presidential advisors i don't know general alexander haig lord rumsfeld . said hesitantly. why do you if we fail all the 1st steps on the moon in the studio then if we fail we can always show those pictures to the public. the film is best understood as satire as opposed to a traditional factual documentary but the production values i'm quite good so it may seem convincing to some. the moon and its never ending magic continues to fascinate and the witches all here on earth. as neil armstrong once said the moon is an interesting place to be i recommend it
