In June 2019 the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing will be celebrated. There will be several documentations. Robert Vogel has already experienced this event very consciously as an 8-year-old and in his lecture Back at APOLLO 11 at FedCon focuses more on the zeitgeist, the cultural influence of the race to the moon and of course the SF-scene of that time.

has been active in the fantasy scene since 1973 and has long since lost track of how many conventions he attended. Since the beginning of the new millennium he infiltrates the European Space Agency ESA and spreads the "SciFi virus". Thus the Darth Vader costume that Alexander Gerst wore at the Halloween photo shoot 2018 on the ISS came from him.
