5 stories from the Apollo 11 mission that have been overshadowed by the gargantuan accomplishment of landing on the moon are finally being told with the help of SYFY Wire's contributor, Phil Plait, and host Karama Horne
You've heard the story of the moon-landing before, but you probably haven't heard about all the other out of this world stories that happened during the Apollo 11 mission.
In this first episode, host Karama Horne and contributor astronomer Phil Plait tell the story of the moon landing - not of the accomplishment, but of its near failure.
In our second episode, Karama Horne takes us through the story behind a surprisingly difficult part of the Apollo 11 mission. Planting the American flag.
In our third episode, host Karama Horne and astronomer Phil Plait aim to illuminate the significance of not only the man behind the camera, but also the photo taken that didn't just change history, but showed all of it.
In our fourth episode, host Karama Horne and astronomer Phil Plait explore an often overlooked part of the Apollo 11 mission: Quarantine. The three astronauts were kept in quarantine for three weeks, once more suspended in isolation, only this time on Earth.
For our fifth episode, host Karama Horne introduces a speech read by guest Dany Roth that President Richard Nixon would have read in the event of a moon disaster and the astronauts did not make it back to earth. Thankfully, Nixon never had to read it, but the remarkable words still hauntingly capture what was at stake when we sent three men to the moon.
