Moore on the Moon

Moore on the Moon

Sir Patrick Moore is one of the best-known and most respected astronomers in the world. For many, he is the popular face of astronomy, having presented the BBC's longest-running program, The Sky at Night, for nearly 50 years. Behind Moore's infectious enthusiasm and eccentric style lies a knowledge and passion for his subject, the Moon. In this thorough examination of the sky, Sir Patrick reviews our present knowledge of the Moon, using illustrations, diagrams, rare film archives and exclusive NASA footage of the Apollo landings, including Neil Armstrong's first walk on the lunar surface. But Moore does not stop there. Here he not only addresses important questions about the Moon that still remain for mankind, but also he guides us through ten of the most important scientific discoveries to come out of lunar research, and he summarizes the stories behind ten of the most memorable images sent back to Earth from the Apollo missions. Produced by Leading Edge Productions. 2008 JSCA 60 min.
