The Apollo 11 space mission changed the world forever as it was the first time humans had ever been to a body off Earth. Americans Neil Armstrong and pilot Buzz Aldrin landed on the moon on July 20th, 1969 and after a 6-hour moonwalk, they returned back to Earth. It was probably the greatest technical achievement of the 20th century, maybe of all time. The challenge, set by US president John F Kennedy in 1962 before his assassination to land a man on the moon before the end of the decade was unprecedented and pushed the boundaries of what humans can achieve further than had ever been done before.
This Apollo 11 documentary explores how the conquest of the moon was done. From the technical difficulties of building the most powerful rocket ever made to the social and policial implications of the mission. To this day no man has travelled further away from Earth.
