On the 25th of May 1961, President John F. Kennedy declared to the world that he was committing the resources of the United States to an unprecedented effort: Project Apollo. This mission, the greatest technological undertaking in history, marked the beginning of a race to space between two superpowers – the US and Soviet Union – and captured hearts and minds around the globe. People were glued to their television sets as Neil Armstrong became the first human being to set foot on the moon in 1969.
However, only two years later, public interest in Apollo began to wane and NASA was forced to cancel its remaining three missions, making Apollo 17 mankind’s final mission to our celestial neighbor. To commemorate this iconic event, a feature-length documentary has recently been released which pays tribute not only to the three brave astronauts who made history but also to all those who worked tirelessly behind them during those last days of NASA’s Apollo program.
From captivating interviews with those involved in this extraordinary undertaking through stunning archival footage from missions past, this documentary is sure to be an unforgettable experience for space enthusiasts and novices alike. If you’re looking for something truly inspiring, then why not take a trip back in time with this incredible story of exploration? Watch it today and join us as we reflect upon humanity’s incredible achievements during one of its most ambitious endeavors yet.
