Synopsis by Karla Baker

One show taken from the "Dreams of Flight" series, "To the Moon" is a trip back in time to see how science fiction became fact. Meet visionaries Jules Verne and H.G. Wells. Meet Werner Von Braun, who would eventually lead America to the moon. Feel the shock when the Russians were the first to launch a vehicle into space. Follow the events of the space race from the Project Mercury to the Gemini to the Apollo. Finally, watch as the Apollo carries Americans, Neil Armstrong, "Buzz" Aldrin, and Michael Collins toward man's first steps on another world. This video is approximately 50 minutes in length.
