75 children aged 10 to 14 pose for a group picture after their Moon Camp experience

75 children, aged from 10 to 14, experienced an adventure that they will never forget: ESERO Portugal gave them the opportunity to actually spend the night at the Pavilion of Knowledge, in a space environment especially built to celebrate the 20th of July 1969, when men first set foot upon the Moon. These lucky kids were assigned the mission of projecting a lunar village, with their own hands, and live a true space mission for one day. They were selected by their own teachers for having already presented space-related projects in their schools.
