Fifty years after the first lunar landing, NASA has opened up its extensive archives and released previously unseen material of amazing audiovisual quality, including a 70mm film of the launch from Cape Canaveral and intimate footage of the otherworldly calm that prevailed in the lunar module. The nine-day mission becomes more than just Armstrong’s iconic “giant leap for mankind,” growing instead into a fascinating space odyssey.


Synopsis

On July 20, 1969 the most watched space adventure of the era reached its climax. Fifty years after the first lunar landing, NASA has opened up its extensive archives and released previously unseen material of amazing audiovisual quality. While the unique 70 mm footage from Cape Canaveral looks romantically at America holding its breath in anticipation of success, the control center is filled with silent tension. But in the lunar model, as it approaches the surface of our planet’s only natural satellite, an otherworldly calm prevails. The nine-day mission becomes more than just Armstrong’s iconic “giant leap for mankind,” growing instead into a fascinating space odyssey.
