Relive the breathtaking story of Apollo 11, the first manned landing on the Moon. Interlaced with original NASA footage transferred to high definition, Moonshot puts viewers aboard the rocket and takes them on the eight-day round trip to outer space. Life behind the scenes and edge-of-your-seat moments in space are dramatized in a film that stretches from the crew’s earliest days at NASA to the moment when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin stepped on the Moon. From home life and families, to the argument over who would be the first to walk on the lunar surface, this is the remarkable story of one of the most chronicled events in history. Using a script based on transcripts from the mission, contemporary documents, books and interviews, the show incorporates news footage from around the world, including that of the iconic CBS anchor Walter Cronkite. Together, the drama and original material present a close-up glimpse of one of the most stunning and courageous personal and technological achievements of man…and one of the defining moments of modern history.
