1969 Moon Landing Heads Up ABC Documentary Series TONIGHT !!!!

The series premiere, "Moon Shot," shows how the July 1969 moon voyage by Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins got the world's attention, although it was also controversial among civil rights leaders because of the billions spent on sending three people to the moon and back again.

"Featured in the episode are interviews with Margaret Hamilton, a pioneering female software engineer whose coding made the moon landing possible; 'Hidden Figures'Katherine Johnson and Christine Darden, [who were among a group of pioneering black women employed by NASA]; astronaut Michael Collins, who was among the three who strapped themselves to an explosive rocket and hurtled into the unknown; and Charlie Duke and Gerry Griffin, who provided the astronauts with a crucial lifeline to Mission Control as they dared to attempt the impossible," ABC representatives said in the statement.
