The Engineers: Lunar Exploration

by BBC World Service and the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851

Each summer, the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 holds an Albertopolis event in partnership with the BBC World Service bringing together three ground-breaking engineers and a public audience.

The Engineers takes place in a different setting each year with robotics at the Science Museum in 2017, genetic engineering at the Natural History Museum in 2018, space flight engineering at Imperial College in 2019, re-engineering for the pandemic in 2020 on zoom, 2021 engineering clean energy at the Victoria and Albert Museum and in 2022 the future of cars at The Science Museum.

This year The Engineers will explore how several of the world’s leading space agencies are working together with private enterprise on a project that aims to put astronauts on the moon within two years.

In a special public event recorded at the Royal Geographical Society, Kevin Fong presents three world-leading engineers from the US, Italy and the UK who are making this possible.

To join us as part of the audience, tickets are free and will be available on the BBC Audiences site here:
