  • Saturn V rocket to be projected onto the Washington Monument

The Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum will project the image of a full-scale, 363-foot Saturn V rocket directly onto the east face of the Washington Monument next weekend, the museum announced.

Towards the end, the massive projection will be accompanied by a special 17-minute show, "Apollo 50: Go for the Moon", that recreates the launch of Apollo 11.

The show combines full-motion projection mapping artwork and archival footage to tell the story of the first Moon landing.

The projection is designed by 59 Productions, an worldwide team made up of artists, architects, and technologists that has brought multi-media events to the Guggenheim Bilbao museum and Edinburgh Castle, among other notable structures. The show will unfold on the face of the Washington Monument and supporting screens, including a 40-foot-wide recreation of the famous Kennedy Space Center countdown clock. H.J. Res. 60 was introduced in the House on June 10, asking the Secretary of the Interior to authorize, "one-time arrangements for displays on the National Mall and the Washington Monument during the period beginning on July 16, 2019 and ending on July 20, 2019".
