When we set foot on the moon 50 years ago the frontier of space seemed within grasp. A half a century later we have yet to solve the complex challenges of human space travel. But, optimism has returned as groundbreaking initiatives gain traction. This documentary series explores the inspiration, ambition, and challenges facing our exploration of space – with a sharp focus on why it matters now and for the future.
After the Moon looks at the evolution of our pursuit of space exploration after Apollo 11. We’ll visit the mavericks and newsmakers that will bring us to the next frontier of space. Archival footage will provide the historical context for how we got here, and where we’re going.
