About this event

Unlike the moon, which we have been gazing at for millennia, the first time humankind got to see the Earth in its entirety as a blue marble floating in space was in 1972 with NASA’s Apollo 17 mission. At this moment, our perception and understanding of our planet changed forever. Hanging in the black emptiness of space the Earth seems isolated, a precious and fragile island of life. From a distance, the Earth is just a pale blue dot. But you can see it up close, right here at The Coro.

Essential safety information

Although no longer mandatory, we encourage all visitors to wear face coverings when indoors, keep a safe distance from others, use hand sanitisers and wash hands regularly, and check in with the NHS Test and Trace app if they are able to do so. All Coro staff and volunteers will continue to wear face coverings.

Toilets will be open and available for use.

Both the main exhibit and toilets are all wheelchair accessible. If you have any specific requirements, please get in touch directly at
