Synopsis:
"Chasing the Moon" re-imagines the race to the moon for a new generation, upending much of the conventional mythology surrounding the effort. The series recasts the Space Age as a fascinating stew of scientific innovation, political calculation, media spectacle, visionary impulses, and personal drama. With no narration and using only archival footage - including a visual feast of previously lost or overlooked material - the film features a diverse cast of characters who played key roles in these historic events.
Among those included are astronauts Buzz Aldrin, Frank Borman, and Bill Anders; Sergei Khrushchev, son of the former Soviet, premier'and a leading Soviet rocket engineer; Poppy Northcutt, the 25-year old "mathematics whiz" who gained worldwide attention as the first woman to serve in the all-male bastion of NASA's Mission Control; and Ed Dwight, the Air Force pilot selected by the Kennedy administration to train as America's first black astronaut.
