What Does It Take to Go to the Moon? (Feature Documentary) | Spark

Who were the men and women of the Apollo Space Program? Where are they today? What do they think of the extraordinary effort they helped make possible? Half a century later, Project Apollo remains the single greatest initiative in peacetime the world has ever known. Its story speaks to the most beautiful characteristics of our humanity: a metaphor for our ability to rise to challenges once thought insurmountable and push past them with even bigger and bolder solutions.

Behind every astronaut who set foot upon the moon and every figurehead who inspired us to get there was Apollo's massive workforce: a team of men and women over 400,000 strong--spanning race, socio-economics, culture and company--who came to understand that the overall Program was only as good as the effort they put into it. When We Were Apollo is a feature-length documentary offering an intimate and personal look at Apollo through the lives and experiences of some of its most inspiring behind-the-scenes figures: engineers, technicians, builders and contractors who spent the better part of a decade working to get us to the moon and back

Last man on the moon confident humans will visit Mars

Harrison Schmitt, the last man on the moon, has hailed the 'significance' of Apollo 11 which he claims brought both a literal and psychological 'freedom' to the people of America.

The retired U.S astronaut was one of the hundreds of thousands in the US space programme who answered the call of President John F Kennedy and landed Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the moon in July 1969.

In December 1972, Schmitt then became the last man ever to step out on to the lunar surface. The three days he spent there with mission commander Eugene Cernan is the longest stay ever.

Apollo Wives | PBS America

The achievements of the Apollo astronauts are well known. Risking their lives, they were committed to the American Dream. But what of the women who supported them and in turn, supported each other?

Being an Apollo wife was tough. At the time, only 40% of the astronauts would survive. Trying to put on a brave face, surviving the relentless media intrusion, and bringing up their children alone and in great poverty while their husbands were away took a very special kind of person.

Forty years after the 1969 moon landing ten of the APOLLO WIVES meet to remember and reveal their stories, describing the difficulties they faced and how they supported each other through suicide attempts, alcoholism and over 15 divorces.

Apollo 11: World marks 50 years since historic moon landing

Sen. Harrison Schmitt | Apollopalooza

Sen. Harrison Schmitt | Apollopalooza

Born in Santa Rita, New Mexico, the Honorable Harrison Schmitt’s numerous accomplishments range from science to public service to business. Notably, as the last of twelve human beings to step on the Moon in December 1972 on NASA’s Apollo 17 Moon mission, he explored the Valley of Taurus-Littrow as both astronaut and geologist. After leaving Earth’s orbit, on the way to the Moon, Schmitt photographed the most requested image of Earth from space—the full Earth picture often referred to as “The Blue Marble.”

Harrison Schmitt graduated from the California Institute of Technology, became a Fulbright Scholar in Norway, and obtained his Doctorate in Geology from Harvard University. Dr. Schmitt was elected to the United States Senate in 1976 and represented New Mexico from 1977 to 1983. As the only natural scientist in the Senate since Thomas Jefferson, Schmitt chaired the Subcommittee on Science, Technology, and Space and the Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health, Human Services, and Education. Subsequent activities include Adjunct Professor of Engineering at the University of Wisconsin, Chair of the NASA Advisory Council, and member of the President’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board. Senator Schmitt consults on aerospace issues, serves as Director of several New Mexico and national corporations, and publishes extensively on space, science, technology, and the U. S. Constitution.

Fly Me to the Moon and Back: Apollo 15 Command Module Astronaut Al Worden

As command module pilot for the Apollo 15 mission to the moon in 1971, Al Worden flew on what is widely regarded as the greatest exploration mission that humans have ever attempted.

He spent six days orbiting the moon, including three days completely alone, the most isolated human in existence.

During the return from the moon to earth he also conducted the first spacewalk in deep space, becoming the first human ever to see both the entire earth and moon simply by turning his head. The Apollo 15 flight capped an already-impressive career as an astronaut, including important work on the pioneering Apollo 9 and Apollo 12 missions, as well as the perilous flight of Apollo 13.

A good friend of Fred Rogers (Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood) Al made multiple appearances on the show and, at Rogers' prodding, even wrote a children's book about his mission to the moon.

Here is a link to Al Worden's other books as well.

 Before Al Worden, political analyst and reporter, Michael Shure stops through.  Michael updates the politics of hate and violence and then gives us the races to watch in the upcoming mid-terms.

The show ends with Mark Thompson offering some thoughts on Prop 12, the proposed farm animal confinement law.
