Description

The six-part series Apollo's Moon Shot explores the Moon program through unique and rare access to Apollo artifacts from the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum. Apollo's Moon Shot tells the entire story of America’s Moon program through rare, newly restored archival film and unique access to the artifacts of Apollo. From John Glenn’s camera, to Apollo 11’s command module, to the last space boots on the Moon –still covered in lunar dust – the series reveals the stories of the men and women who made the mission possible. Stunning footage of each mission – some of it rarely seen – is combined with NASA’s oral histories taken directly from the astronauts’ debriefings upon their return to the Earth. In-depth explorations of astronaut artifacts from the Museum’s vaults form an intimate connection between the viewer and the men on the face of the Moon.
