Can anyone tell me where (if at all) I can see "Apollo 11 IMAX" in western Germany or the Netherlands ? I am willing to drive quite a bit so "hundred km around Enschede" would possibly still be O.K. ;)
My google-foo fails me whenever I search for "where do they show this or that IMAX film?..."
In The Netherlands, The premiere of Apollo 11: First Steps Edition (47 minutes version) will be shown tomorrow exclusively in the Omniversum Theatre in The Hague: https://www.omniversum.nl/nl/filmagenda/apollo-11. In the next 4 weeks, the 93 minutes version can be seen there. Tickets and dates: https://www.omniversum.nl/nl/filmagenda/apollo-11

From the 27th of June onwards it will be shown in other cinemas across the country, including the Pathé cinemas in Arnhem and Zwolle. I assume that's the same in Germany.

In Amsterdam, on the 20th and 21st of July, the 'Het Concert Gebouw' theatre has a special on the 50th anniversary of the moon landings with commentary from two times Soyuz astronaut André Kuipers and music by Symphony Orchestra Vlaanderen. More info here: https://www.concertgebouw.nl/en/page/41036

Thanks Marijn for the information :thumbup:
Unfortunately it's (as usual) a real pain in the a** to find when & where it is shown near my location....grrrrr

But since you provided a date-range I can hopefully find something for Arnhem, Doetichem, Nijmegen or Enschede.

Here's is the original video:

My Russian is limited to "raketa", "sputnik" and "sistiema" but auto translate sort of works.
It looks as they are finishing up 1.2 this year(?) for the upcoming launch (next year ? ).

I recommend subscribing Roscosmos channel regardless of most of it being in Russian only.
They do have nice videos.

My recreation of the Apollo 11 preflight press conference.
This should be close to the complete press conference, although the segment where the plaque is discussed has no sound, and there are a few gaps shortly after.

My take on the TV footage. Still crap but I managed to correct most of the vignetting and restore a more natural grey tone balance (I hope ;) )

100th title by Apogee Book.

Technical Proposal for Manned Multi Modular Spacecraft (Project MALLAR)

Until recently the work of a team of engineers at the Vought Aircraft Astronautics Division remained largely unknown. Between the Spring of 1958 and Christmas 1959 this team worked out the most effective way to get to the moon using the advanced rockets being proposed by Wernher von Braun's team at the ABMA.

In January 1960, more than a year before President Kennedy's challenge, Vought's manager John Clark sent this report to Abe Silverstein, head of manned space flight at NASA. Less than a month later Silverstein ordered his advanced design leader, Robert Piland, to essentially work from these ideas to create a modular spacecraft system for Apollo. It would be two years later that NASA would then adopt the method resurrected by the Vought team to leave the main spacecraft in lunar orbit to save fuel.

Only ten copies of this report were distributed - until now.

Never heard of Vought's involvement before?
