  • Sneak Preview: Chasing the Moon

    Join us as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the lunar landing with a preview of the upcoming film "Chasing the Moon." 

    On Wednesday, June 26, we'll show Part 1: The Early Years, when the space race was just beginning. The Soviets were beating the Americans in space, and one of the biggest blows to American prestige was when Russian Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin becomes the first man in space. As the tension of the Space Race continues to escalate, President Kennedy begins to question whether it is worth the dollars and time.

    Chasing the Moon will air on PBS in its entirety starting on July 8. Space for this sneak preview will be limited to 50 seats. Register here
