8 Days: To the Moon and Back

To celebrate 50 years anniversary of Moon Landing, Sony BBC Earth enters a unique partnership with Nehru Science Centre.

50 years ago, on July 20, 1969, millions of people around the world witnessed a trio of astronauts – Neil Armstrong, Edwin Aldrin and Michael Collin – create history, as they became the first men to step on the moon. Sony BBC Earth, India’s premium infotainment channel, will celebrate this historic milestone by premiering the docu-series ‘8 Days: To the Moon and Back’ as part of the partnership with India’s largest interactive science Center – Nehru Science Centre.

Eight days, three hours, 18 minutes, 35 seconds – that’s the total duration of one of the most dangerous and magnificent space missions – Apollo 11. The docu-series uses cutting-edge digital effects and dramatized performances to create a stunning 21st-century visual journey. Students from various schools in Mumbai will get to witness this grand visual spectacle at Nehru Science Centre and hear the original and candid cockpit audio files from fifty years ago!
