Merritt's Moonlanding

After Dr. Merritt Moore's TedX University of Oslo talk and performance with Shane Urton, the two crafted a short dance film to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission to the moon. This piece draws parallels between the principles of escape velocity and the importance of defying limited thinking and stereotypes.
