Make It To The Moon: The Unsung Heroes of Apollo is a premium documentary that brings to life, for the first time ever, the story of the four teams of young unknowns recruited by NASA to pioneer the cutting-edge technology responsible for the first moon landing in 1969 as part of the Apollo 11 mission.
Featuring breath-taking visuals, never-before-seen first-hand accounts and exclusive archived footage, alongside CGI recreations, this ground- breaking documentary presents one of the most pivotal moments in human history through the incredible stories of a group of unsung heroes.
To deliver on JFK’s extraordinary promise of putting a man on the moon by the end of the 1960’s, NASA’s leaders had to look to everyday engineers, designers, and technicians, with no aerospace experience, to create the most revolutionary technology the world had ever seen. Searching for work, these soon-to-be-heroes in their early twenties were unaware of the work they were hired to take on. They went on to create the world’s first space suit, space craft, navigation system, and communication system.
Full of adventure and high drama, the documentary reveals a fascinating new take on Neil Armstrong’s first nail-biting steps on the moon, that will forever change our understanding of mankind’s greatest accomplishment.
In Make It To The Moon: The Unsung Heroes of Apollo we will hear their stories of innovation, personal sacrifice, spirit and unthinkable triumph through their determination for man to leave Earth...and make it to the moon.
