The History Channel Presents: The Race to the Moon

On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong took man's first steps on the moon. Roughly one billion awestruck people watched the lunar landing on television, but very few realized how close it came to disaster.

THE HISTORY CHANNEL® PRESENTS: THE RACE TO THE MOON combines top programming from THE HISTORY CHANNEL® to deliver the ultimate 35th anniversary celebration of this world-changing event. Experience the ultimate insider's view of the Apollo space program with the man who served as NASA's primary flight director for over 30 years and examine recently declassified documents revealing NASA's plans to send men to Saturn by 1970. Take a nostalgic trip back to the early days of the space program and return to the present-day triumphs and tragedies of one of our greatest technological achievements--the space shuttle.

The following programs are included in this two-volume set:

"Failure Is Not an Option" -- Retired NASA Flight Director Gene Kranz recalls the "whiz kid" atmosphere of the space program's early days and the exploits of the astronauts who took our dreams to the moon.

"Code Name: Project Orion" -- Explore the grand dreams of the top-secret U.S. space program in the 1950s. Renowned physicists like Freeman Dyson discuss visions of battleship-sized rockets and spaceships hitched to comets.

"Modern Marvels®: Apollo 13" -- An unexpected disaster leaves the crew of Apollo 13 lost in space. In many ways, this failed moon mission is one of NASA's finest moments.

"Modern Marvels®: Space Shuttle" -- The complete story of the shuttle, from its conception in the 1950s to its triumphant launch in 1981. Plus, an exclusive peek at the next-generation space shuttle, the futuristic X-33.
