We might not all have the means to travel to the moon (yet!), but we’re willing to bet that many given the opportunity would quickly jump at the chance. Museum of the Moon is a touring sculpture from UK artist Luke Jerram that takes you one step closer to experiencing the true awe and grandeur of the lunar surface. It’s a 23-foot wide, helium-filled and internally lit globe that displays a 21-meter wide, high-resolution image that was created by the Astrogeology Science Centre in the USA using imagery taken by a NASA satellite in 2010. That boils down to a 120dpi image with an approximate scale of 1:500,000 where each centimeter represents 5km of the lunar surface. Museum of the Moon features several different sculptures touring simultaneously with different audio compositions, so you can catch it all of Europe, Australia, China and Canada at any given time. Check out the site below for a full list of tour dates.
