  • We have welcomed Moon walkers on three occasions  and more than 1200 people have attended our conferences
  • We conceived a permanent exhibition in the Swiss Transport Museum in Luzern. 
  • At the Foire du Valais, we mounted the largest exhibition on the Apollo program ever organized in Europe.
  • This year, in 2014, we will invite Moon walkers to Switzerland for three events

Thank you for your support, without which these achievements would be impossible. We look forward to your joining us for new adventures in the future.
