It’s almost 50 years since U.S. astronaut Neil Armstrong touched down on the moon. While he was a scientist by profession, he was obviously a poet at heart. How else would you explain the origins of his famous one one-liner, “A small step for man, a giant leap for mankind”?
While it’s true that such a special moment would always bring back a sense of longing, there’s just something special about celebrating a jubilee.
Well aware that the day is a significant moment in time, AstroReality has partnered up with ShareSpace, one of the pillar organizations of the Aldrin Family Foundation. Like birds of a feather, ShareSpace also believes in the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) initiative, just as much as we do.
Given the magnitude of the occasion, we decided to all out to celebrate the day. On Saturday, July 20, 2019, the Aldrin Family Foundation and The People’s Moon will turn Time Square NY into Tranquility Base – the Apollo 11 landing site!
ShareSpace and AstroReality collaborating on a project make sense on so many different wavelengths. Just like AstroReality, ShareSpace has spent a good number of years inspiring kids with their Giant Maps.
Kids looking to access the maps need to apply and they will then stand a chance of getting to learn about man’s traverses across the universe. They objectively seek to teach kids about the various missions and research projects undertaken in outer space.
To clearly elaborate the entire phenomenon, AstroReality stepped into the picture. Our involvement with the project allows us to create amazing covers of humanity’s exploits on the moon.
Since we’re celebrating the Apollo 11 mission, we’ve specially prepared interesting tidbits including images and introductions on the events leading up to the mission. Objectively, we’re looking to provide the full learning experience. The lessons are sure to be immersive, interactive, and enlightening.
Because the younger generation spends plenty of time staring at screens, we felt challenged to find a way to talk to them directly. There’s no better technology capable of connecting with the next generation than augmented reality. Cognizant of this, we objectively set goals for ourselves to come up with fantastic learning experiences that would be deemed worthwhile by the next generation of learners.
By making good use of our augmented technology, the Aldrin Family Foundation will be able to turn Times Square NY into Tranquility Base, the site where Apollo 11 landed on July 20, 1969. AstroReality is glad to power the Augmented Reality experience of the Giant Moon Map featuring the moon landings spots of the Apollo Missions. Relive the journey to the Moon!
Traditionally, the giant ball is usually reserved for New Year’s Day celebrations. However, since it’s not every other day that mankind touches down on the moon, the bells and whistles are set to make a cameo.
The People’s Moon specially prepared a giant mosaic of the fantastic boot print that consists of people walking the ground on Duffy Square. This means that those on-site will get an immersive experience of what walking on the moon is really like. The younger generation will also get a lesson or two about past landings on the moon, both human and unmanned explorations.
Key Moments commemorating history on Saturday, July 20th:

Sputnik inspired the creation of songs and replicas about the moon. Not to be left behind, Life Magazine came up with multiple articles about the first American astronaut. Notably, Stanley Kubrick’s genius shone in 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Everything in daily living at the time seemed to have something to do with the exploits of astronauts. Car manufacturers even started producing cars that had the same aerodynamic lines that rockets donned.
The space conversation was everywhere you went. On the TV, in music, and architectural designs. It was an idea whose time had clearly come. Shows like The Jetsons, Star Wars, Star Trek, and Mork & Mindy quickly became fan favorites.
The moon landing signaled a new era for humanity. The Apollo 11 mission set the foundation stone upon which today’s rocketry is fueled. Other than national space agencies, some new faces have entered into the fray in a bid to outdo each other.
Space companies are increasingly reviewing new ways they’ll be able to make bank by fulfilling the wishes and aspirations of the uber-rich.
Since not everyone has the financial muscle to fund a trip to far-flung places like outer space, we’ve come up with a brilliant solution that brings everything much closer home.
With our augmented reality technology, you can experience all the thrills that the cosmos has to offer and then some. We are proud to be a part of the event by offering our Augmented Reality technology to inspire the next generation with a new way of education. Relive your journey to the moon today. We will see you at New York Time Square.
