52 years ago, In July 1961 President Kennedy put a man on the moon. To win the space race, the United States had to establish a multi-billion dollar space program. What a first seemed like an impossible dream soon became a reality thank to one man, Werner Von Braun. He believed he had the knowledge and vision to make Kennedy’s dream a reality.
With the American public galvanised and the expertise of over 200,000 scientists and engineers, Von Braun masterminded the development of the Saturn V; the rocket that flew 24 men to the moon and launched the greatest adventure in the history of exploration. Using visual effects, stunning NASA footage and expert interviews with Apollo Space Scientists, this inspirational film tells the story of the colossal challenges NASA faced to fulfill Kennedy’s pledge. With the accolade of flying 24 men safely to the moon, the mighty Saturn V will always be considered one of mankind’s greatest technological achievements. This is the story of the most powerful machine ever built, and the men and women who believed it could fly.
