On July 20th, 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin set foot on the moon. They had reached the distant light that humans had admired and looked up to for thousands of years.


It was a mission with hundreds of dedicated minds behind it. A dangerous and ambitious mission, that could have failed at many moments. On this special episode of The Pulse, we will explore the science that got us to the moon, the politics that push space exploration, and our relationship with the moon. Also - how people around the country remember and celebrated the moon landing.

July 20, 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing and AM 1370 is proud to bring listeners a week of special programming to commemorate the anniversary, running Sunday, July 14 through Sunday, July 21.
