The following field illustrates, through NASA’s films and pictures made in the 1960s, the time when one of humanity’s dreams was materialized: the arrival of man to the moon. It was undoubtedly one of the greatest events of the twentieth century, it had a great media impact and allowed the start of a new phase, the creation of space stations and the projection of a new challenge for the 21st century: to know more about space, to travel to other planets such as Mars.  Photos and documents of The Melissa Project from Universidad Autònoma de Barcelona, -European Space Agency- and Joan Fontcuberta’s pictures define the last field.

The exhibition is composed of films, photographs, drawings and scores of creators and scientists made between the 19th century and the present day such as Maurice Loewy and Pierre Puiseux, Camille Flammarion, José Comas y Solà, James Nasmyth, Georges Méliès, Raymond Loewy, Joan Fontcuberta , Eduardo Polonio, Aleydis Rispa, Nasa and the Melissa project of La UAB, European Space Agency, among others that illustrate the fascination to conquer space
