PBS Distribution is taking audiences into space again next month with a new episode of its hit science-based series NOVA.
NOVA: Apollo’s Daring Mission is scheduled for release on March 19 on DVD. The story on this episode follows the events of the Apollo 8 flight, the first of the Apollo missions that took a man to the moon.
The mission came only a year after the tragedy of the Apollo 1 mission, which ended in fire during a pre-launch run through. The Apollo 8 mission, according to the story, started out as an Earth orbit mission, but out of concern about losing the so-called Space Race to Russia, it was modified to a lunar mission.
Now half a century later, those connected with the historic mission talk about the launch and everything that went into it from start to end.
NOVA: Apollo’s Daring Mission will retail for MSRP of $24.99, but can be pre-ordered online now at a reduced price of $19.99 at PBS’ online store. More information on this and other titles of NOVA is available online now at:
