First Man on the Moon

First Man on the Moon DVD cover

Nova presents this intimate portrait of Neil Armstrong, revealing his achievements as a Navy combat veteran and pioneer of high-speed flight. The documentary relives the tense final moments of the Apollo 11 landing, when Armstrong brought the Eagle down safely with seconds to spare. But he regretted that he got so much credit for the team effort that the lunar landing represented. This is an inspiring story of heroic risk-taking and humble dedication to advancing humanity’s adventure in space. The DVD is available when you support WXXI at the $7-a-month level.
