DISCOVERY AND SCIENCE CHANNEL CELEBRATE APOLLO 50 WITH SERIES OF SPECIALS

(New York) - Discovery and Science Channel are set to honor the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing, one of our nation's most significant. America's race to the moon was no simple mission. 400,000 engineers and scientists devoted their lives to creating a rocket powerful enough to take us to the moon. A fearless group of astronauts risked their lives to fly a spaceship that would land on a precise spot, 250,000 miles away. The historic achievement helped forever change the way we see the universe.

APOLLO: THE FORGOTTEN FILMS

This is the complete story of this most audacious of missions, with footage from a number of different resources including NASA Research Centers, The National Archives, and news reports of the time. Researchers sifted through thousands of reels of film, to put together this remarkable behind the scenes look at the exhaustive preparation that went into sending the first humans to our moon. The archives reveal the incredible lengths an army of engineers, scientists and astronauts went to, to achieve America's greatest technological feat.

Premieres Saturday, July 20 at 8pm ET/PT on Discovery

Encore on Sunday, July 21 at 7pm ET/PT on Science Channel

CONFESSIONS FROM SPACE: APOLLO

Buzz Aldrin (Apollo 11), Mike Collins (Apollo 11), Charlie Duke (Apollo 16), and more, come together to share insights, experiences, and stories of the greatest adventure mankind has ever undertaken. Learn what it was like to go to the moon from the men who lived it. This one-hour special was produced for Discovery by Seeker, a Group Nine Company.
