Featuring official NASA and Science Museum Footage.
‘… I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth.’
With these words, delivered in a speech at Rice University on 12th September 1962, President John F. Kennedy signalled the start of a space race that was to end with Neil Armstrong stepping on to the surface of the Moon. But what of the history of the Apollo programme, of their great exploratory successes and the human cost of their spectacular failures?
Join astronomer Sir Patrick Moore, for many the voice of the Moon Landings, as he explains the Apollo programme in fascination detail, with access to unique NASA footage and the Science Museum’s Space Expedition. From the launce pad disaster of the Apollo 1 mission, which lead to the tragic deaths of three astronaughts, to Armstrong’s historicals ‘giant leap for mankind’ and the Apollo 13 explosion, where the world held its breath and prayed for the safey of those onboard, Sir Patrick Moore takes us on a cosmic journey of discovery.
