Apollo 11: First Steps Edition

Crafted from a newly-discovered trove of 70 mm footage and more than 11,000 hours of audio recordings, Apollo 11 takes us straight to the heart of NASA’s most celebrated mission: the one that first put men on the moon, and forever made Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin household names. Immersed in the perspectives of the astronauts, the team in Mission Control, and the millions of spectators on the ground, we vividly experience those momentous days and hours in 1969 when humankind took a giant leap into the future.
