CosmoCaixa, from December 18, 2018
In 2019 we celebrate 50 years of the arrival of the man on the Moon. The exhibition tells us the mission that allowed it, the Apollo, and relates science and comics.
The desire of man to reach the Moon exists since Galileo first observed it with a telescope in 1609. And although this goal was not reached by Neil Armstrong until 1969, Tintin had already visited it in 1950. In the comic Destination Moon, by Hergé, Tintin began his journey, which culminated in 1952 with Explorers on the Moon.
