Half a century after humanity’s historic first step on the Moon, the Buffalo Bill Center of the West is hosting a screening of Smithsonian Channel’s new documentary, “The Day We Walked on the Moon.”
The free showing will be held from 3-4 p.m. Saturday at the Cen-
ter of the West’s Coe Auditorium.
Astronauts (including Michael Collins, the third member of the Apollo 11 mission), members of Mission Control (including Flight Director Gene Kranz, Capsule Communicator Charles Duke and Guidance Officer Steve Bales) and the children of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin reveal their personal stories behind the scenes of the iconic day. Pop culture notables like Queen guitarist and doctor of astrophysics Brian May and television personality and professor of physics Brian Cox describe where they were and what they felt during that “One Small Step.”
It’s a story that ranges from the deeply personal to the grand and historic, an in-depth look at one of the most important 24-hour periods in history. The documentary will continue to air on Smithsonian Channel throughout the month and is available to stream on the Smithsonian Channel app and at www.SmithsonianChannel.com.
