Apollo’s Moon Shot
Apollo’s Moon Shot 6 x 60'
When President Kennedy challenged NASA to reach for the moon in 1961, it had all of fifteen minutes of space flight experience. By 1969, Neil Armstrong’s famous boot print was in the moons dust. In between are extraordinary tales of politics, engineering, ego, tragedy, and triumph. They are told by key astronauts, historians, Smithsonian experts, and one-of-a kind artefacts. We reveal how the missions started, right through to the test runs of Apollo 1 to 6, what it was like getting to and exploring the moon with Apollo missions 7 to 16 and how Apollo 17 greatly contributed to the understanding of the Moon’s geological history as well as advancing many areas of new technology. This six part series sheds new light on one of the most compelling chapters of the American storybook: Project Apollo.
