Synopsis

NOVA: To the Moon
For the 30th anniversary of man's landing on the moon, Nova presents a two-hour tribute to one of the greatest scientific achievements in history. In July of 1969, much of the civilized world watched transfixed as an American astronaut planted his feet on the dusty surface of the moon. The images were perhaps not the clearest, but they were live, and demonstrated the culmination of a joint effort between scientists and engineers to begin an exploration of the moon. These technical experts, the unpublicized heroes of the lunar effort, tell of their contributions that brought it all together. ~ Alice Day, Rovi
