Once upon a time on the moon
Featuring Hans Zimmer
Starring Brian May, Rick Wakeman
Once upon a time on the Moon… Something that sounded like a fairy tale to generations of people became a reality fifty years ago. The 2019 Starmus Festival celebrates mankind’s first step on the Moon, coinciding with the 50 th anniversary of this great event in human history. This year’s theme, “A Giant Leap”, brings together the most brilliant minds in the fields of space exploration, astronomy, cosmology and planetary science to exchange views and discuss – and also celebrate – their findings.
The event kicks off with a spectacular opening concert entitled “Once upon a time on the Moon”. Here, artists including Oscar winner Hans Zimmer, Queen cult guitarist & composer Brian May and Yes star Rick Wakeman, together with the 21 st Century Orchestra & Choir, will pay tribute to the unique connection between space, science and music, in the presence of several Apollo astronauts. Zimmer’s film scores for “Inception” and “Interstellar” offer the perfect sound for this – combined with unique visuals from “Interstellar” visual effects creator Paul Franklin and Nobel laureate physicist Kip Thorne, guitar hero Steve Vai, they will ensure a Galactic experience. David Bowie’s “Space Oddity”, as interpreted by Rick Wakeman and astronaut Chris Hadfield, and a fantastic all-star finale with Queen hits, are also on the programme. This special evening will conclude with the announcement of the winners of the Stephen Hawking Medal, which was personally inaugurated by Hawking in 2016 to honour those who are particularly committed to promoting public awareness of science.
