About Mission To The Moon

From 15-20 July, National Geographic pays tribute to those who first stepped foot on the moon and those who dedicated their lives to making it happen. New documentary every night.

Across the week eight new documentaries, including never before seen footage, will re-live the Apollo program –from the promise JFK made in 1962 through to the immortal words spoken by Neil Armstrong as he set foot on the moon.

The outcome of these missions has been unimaginable, the path to it was often marked with tragedy, but the legacy of those who involved will live on always.
