About Us

On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first men to walk on the moon. The mission that got them there, Apollo 11, was the culmination of the nation's decade-long cultural and scientific fascination with outer space. In this four-part series, transport back in time, and understand what Apollo 11 felt like to the millions of Americans who lived through it.

Latest Episodes

In The Beginning

The Clock is Running and We're Underway

Four satellite launches into the Space Race, and the score—in terms of pounds put into orbit—is Communism, 1300; Capitalism, 33.And the humiliations keep on coming. Playing it safe, America loses a chance to put the first man in space. Instead, they opt to fly a steely-eyed missile chimp. The Russians knock a grand slam homer out of the park as Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin does on the first manned mission what it would take America three more launches to accomplish. In history's biggest sales pitch ever, the Soviet Union is handing the United States its backside on a platter.In Part 2 of What We Saw, we will watch as America continues its serial humiliation. But then, the space equivalent of a candy apple red '66 Corvette Stingray convertible starts to dig in and get some real traction as the Cold War gets hotter.Learn more about your ad choices.
