Description

For thousands of years people have looked up at the moon and dreamed about getting there. It was only at the beginning of the last century that the dream looked possible because of ideas developed by Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, the son of a Russian Woodcutter. He became a maths teacher and inventor of many theories about how to get people into space. Then came the American Robert Goddard who made a liquid fuelled rocket that actually flew. The race into space had begun. This program uses historical footage to illustrate the super human effort of putting the first person on the moon.
