Explore the Apollo Space Program through the lives and experiences of some of its most inspiring behind-the-scenes figures: engineers, technicians, builders, and contractors who spent the better part of a decade working to get us to the moon and back.
Who were the men and women of Project Apollo? Where are they today? What do they think of the extraordinary effort they helped make possible?
Half a century later, the Apollo Space Program remains the single greatest initiative in peacetime the world has ever known. Its story speaks to the most beautiful characteristics of our humanity - our ability to rise to challenges once thought insurmountable and push past them with ever bigger and bolder solutions. Behind every astronaut who set foot on the moon, and every figurehead who inspired us to get there, was Apollo's massive workforce. This team of over 400,000 men and women - who came from diverse racial, socioeconomic, and cultural backgrounds - came to understand that the overall program was only as good as the effort they put into it. With incredible access and interviews with members of the original Apollo effort, we explore this great collaboration and the real people behind this inspirational success story.
