New York City
To the moon and over the moon. Pursuing moonbeams and moon walks. In the aftermath of World War II, America’s romantic notions of the reaches of space, along with a fear that the Soviets might get there first, create a nationwide lust for space flight that is satisfied by rocket science. German rocketeers, men who learned their craft designing weapons for the Nazis, men like Arthur Rudolph and Wernher von Braun, are brought to the US to become citizens and eventually heroes as they help both land astronauts on the moon and create Disney’s Tomorrowland. A fascinating tapestry of human brilliance and brutality, culminating in the 1969 lift-off of Apollo 11 and a man on the moon.
