On July 20, 1969, 50 years ago, the first man walked on the moon. After John F. Kennedy announced a manned flight to the moon in May 1961, about 400,000 scientists and technicians worked to make this vision come true within only eight years. In this time many disciplines in science were advanced. Computers and digital technology have changed the world and inspired science fiction authors.
In his lecture Science && Fiction in the age of moon landings, Hubert Zitt will “capture” the zeitgeist of that time and show how people thought then and what visions they had with selected scenes from science fiction films and series.
