Fly Me To The Moon

 

FLY ME TO THE MOON is the first ever computer animated film designed, created and produced from first frame, exclusively for the 3D experience.  In 1969, three astronauts dared to go where no man had gone before; the moon.  FLY ME TO THE MOON combines the Apollo 11 mission with a twist involving three tween-aged flies who go along on an incredible space adventure.  The film introduces new generations to space exploration and the historic moment when the world was united for this awe-inspiring achievement. 

To coincide with the release of Fly Me to the Moon we have some fantastic facts and things for you to do with your children.

 

 Fun space facts:

  • Laika the dog was the first animal to go into space on the Society space mission Sputnik 2

  • The first human space flight was the Vostok 1 which carried Yuri Gagarin on 12 April 1961

  • NASA (The National Aeronautics and space Administration) was set up in October 1958

  • Dennis Tito, a 60 year of American multimillionaire became the first space tourist

  • Neil Armstrong, commander of Apollo 11 became the first man on the Moon in 1969.

  • In 1967 Vladimir Komarov became the first person to die in space when his spacecraft crashed on return due to multiple failures.  He was taking part in the Voskhod mission.  The most recent space accident was in 2003 when the Columbia Space Shuttle broke up on re-entering Earth’s atmosphere killing seven crew members.

  • The first words spoken on the moon were by Neil Armstrong who said ‘One small step for man, a giant leap for mankind’.  'OK, let's get this mother out of here' were the last words spoken on the Moon, by Eugene Cernan.

  • The only sport to have been played on the moon is golf.  Alan Shepard hit a golf ball on 6 Feb 1971.

  • To remember the order of the planets use the phrase 'My Very Eager Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas' - the capital letters give the order of planets, beginning with closest to sun - Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto.
