Lunar gravity simulator
An event every week that begins at 00:00 on Sunday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until 28 October, 2019
Gravity, this natural phenomenon by which the objects with mass attract each other, varies depending on the mass that has a specific astronomical object. On the Moon, for example, an astronaut weighs six times less than on Earth. Therefore they can walk effortless even if he carries about a hundred kilos between the suit and the backpack
However, the astronaut’s mass remains the same, which can unbalance him when he walks and, above all, when he stops. Have you ever tried a gravity simulator? Now, we invite you to try it at CaixaForum. In our lunar gravity simulator you can emulate what the astronauts of the Apollo 11 mission experienced 50 years ago.
