The Euro Space Center and the Hergé Museum are working together on a project to promote science and technology with the help of the magical universe of Tintin.

The Euro Space Center has developed the Destination Moon program, a workshop allowing children from school groups to become astronauts for a day. Pupils find out what it was like for Tintin and his friends to visit the Moon.

The classes are based on a game of mystery and discovery. Completing a series of activities yields clues that lead to the solving of the mystery and a hidden treasure! Activities include lunar walk simulations, scientific experiments carried out in the hold of the Space Shuttle, construction projects, mini-rocket launch sequences and experiences of daily life in space.

Those taking part in the activities will be provided with a special folder packed with information about the Moon and enlargements of frames taken from the Moon adventures.

The entire program is based on the myriad links between Tintin's adventures and real-life space exploration.

Classes will be invited to discover the Hergé Museum where they will be able to discover the historical context behind the Tintin adventures and the era in which Hergé lived as he created Destination Moon. Despite the fact that this adventure was published in 1953, 16 years before the Neil Armstrong took man's first steps on the Moon, there are many links between Hergé's depiction of certain phenomenon (weightlessness, etc.) and technology (the rocket), and the real-life adventures undertaken by the Apollo Space program. The work of Hergé truly goes beyond science-fiction.

Travel to the Moon with Tintin: the experience of a lifetime!
