Apollo’s Daring Mission 1x54

NOVA tells the in-depth story of Apollo’s riskiest mission: a sixteen-week race to beat the Soviets and send three men in a tiny space capsule to, around and back from a moon a quarter of a million miles away –before 1968 came to a close. To mark the 50th anniversary of this historic mission, Apollo 8’s astronauts, Commander Frank Borman, Command Module Pilot James Lovell and Lunar Module Pilot William Anders reconvene and tell the story through a fascinating and untapped prism: the incredible science, extraordinary engineering feats and huge technological challenges that enabled them to go where no one had ever gone before.
