Description:
 Each of nine Saturn V rockets carried three Apollo astronauts to the Moon between 1968 and 1972. As the world watched, each of six Lunar Modules carried two astronauts to the lunar surface to conduct experiments, bring back rock samples, plant the Stars and Stripes on the Moon’s surface, and leave the first sets of footprints in the lunar dust. How did the astronauts get to the Moon and return safely? What did they find? What have we learned about the Moon – and the Earth – since the Apollo missions ended? Will humans again walk on the lunar surface, and will they come to stay? This program presents an overview of the Apollo Lunar Landing missions, a look at the craters, mountains, and valleys of the lunar surface, and a glimpse of the return of humans to the Moon.
