Moon Machines, Season 1HDTV-PGClosed Captioning

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.


Forty years after man's first steps on the lunar surface, reaching the Moon is still a metaphor for an impossible journey. But while the astronauts who walked on the Moon became household names, the creators of the machines that made those journeys possible have been largely forgotten. Yet, from the impossibly gigantic Saturn V rocket to the fragile “tissue paper” lunar lander, the stories of these miracles of engineering are every bit as extraordinary as those of the men who flew them.

Customer Reviews

Great stuff for space geeks

This mini-series is excellent for the serious space enthusiast. It's the only one of it's kind. It forgoes the conventional space race documentary and delves into the backstory of exactly how we made it to the moon. Fascinating "inside baseball" for the space buff.

Really good.

Great archival footage & interviews captures the drama of the Space Race era.

Fly Me to the Moon

I'm impressed that seemingly difficult and complicated concepts such as Inertial Guidance Systems can be explained in such a way that make that interesting. Or how a mutli-staged rocket worked so well to send 3 men, a quarter-million miles from the earth to the moon. We've seen the Astronauts talk about going into space, but what about the other engineers, scientists that made the machines that got us to the moon. This series does a fantastic job of explaining how the machines that got us to the moon worked.
