Buzz Aldrin descending from the lunar lander
One of the defining passages in American history, the Apollo space program literally brought the aspirations of a nation to another world. Between 1968 and 1972, nine American spacecraft voyaged to the Moon, and 12 men walked upon its surface. For the first time ever, all surviving crew members from the Apollo missions tell their story in their own words. Visually stunning original NASA film footage - much of it never seen before - is interwoven with riveting firsthand testimony. The result is an intimate epic that vividly conveys the daring and the danger, the pride and the passion of this extraordinary era in American history.
Rated PG. 100 minutes.
