Duration: 7'18" min.

A "sequel" to the moon landing took the form of a rocket in which the First Woman on the Moon would never have been able to go anywhere in. The monumental (22m tall) sculpture which was built out of industrial debris and stood in the London Roundhouse for 3 days only before it was scrapped, was aptly titled Gravity (2006).
