2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. The culmination of 400,000 people
working to meet John F. Kennedy’s impossible deadline, with technology that didn’t yet exist, to explore a place that we knew nothing about.
It has become one of human history’s defining moments.
Join TV science presenter and author Dallas Campbell for his hands- on grand tour of the science and history of human space flight. From forgotten stories of the early space race, To those first footsteps
on the moon to our future on Mars and beyond.

Wondered how to get there.
