Apollo 50 & Lunar London

In this oblique angle on the 50th anniversary of the first landing on the moon in the Apollo 11 mission, presenter Adrian Lacey talks to Ron Burkey. He’s made it his mission to reconstitute the computer code that got humans to the moon, in order for you to be able to reproduce some of that experience on your own computer!

You’ll also hear how Adrian met the second man on the moon, Buzz Aldrin, in London, as well as the story of a hairy happening in the same BBC building while the lunar module came into land. Quite literally far out, man!
