Smithsonian Channel 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing screening 2019: The Day We Walked on the Moon

This documentary marks the 50th anniversary of man’s first steps on the lunar surface and tells the story of this defining moment in our history. Interviews with key figures in Mission Control, contemporary astronauts and the families of Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong shine a light on how dangerous the mission really was and how close it came to failure numerous times. The documentary also features the Lunar Module “Eagle”, now housed at the National Air & Space Museum and interviews with Smithsonian curator, Dr. Teasel Muir-Harmony.
