Back to the Moon

16 July 1969. A rocket, carrying Apollo 11, sits on the launch pad at Cape Canaveral awaiting a historic and insane mission… to walk on the surface of the Moon for the first time… to open a new chapter in human history.

Hour by hour, we relive the crucial moments of those 8 days, 3 hours, 18 minutes and 35 seconds, the incredible echo the mission sent around the world and the growing awareness of a Humankind awakening for the first time to its fragility in the immensity of the cosmos…

An extraordinary journey, a veritable return to the Moon, which, in recent years, has once again become the target of space agencies due to the success of the International Space Station.
