To the Moon
To the Moon, a companion website to PBS's NOVA television program, chronicles the untold science and engineering story of how we got to the moon. There are images with captions from the Apollo missions, games and activities, journal excerpts from the last man on the Moon (Eugene Cerran), and a discussion of where humans may have come from. The Space Pioneers section offers audio and text about space from those who have experienced it, such as Jim Lovell and Buzz Aldrin. Additional resources are suggested for more information. The accompanying video is available to order.
