APOLLO: Missions to the Moon debuts onboard Delta

National Geographic’s ‘APOLLO: Missions to the Moon’ debuts onboard Delta

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the historic moon landing, Delta and National Geographic have teamed up to bring the new documentary “APOLLO: Missions to the Moon” onboard in advance of its July premiere on National Geographic.

Starting this month, Delta customers can experience the epic two-hour documentary, featuring newly transferred footage and never-before-heard audio to recount the groundbreaking, key moments of America’s journey to land on the moon before 1970. With no narration nor modern-day talking heads, the missions are experienced entirely through archival TV footage, rediscovered radio broadcasts, home movies, NASA film and mission-control audio to create an eyewitness-like, immersive experience.

“APOLLO: Missions to the Moon” will be available onboard Delta exclusively in June and will premiere on National Geographic on Sunday, July 7 at 9/8c, launching Space Week, the network’s week-long programming event. Space enthusiasts can find more about the history and future of space exploration from National Geographic at natgeo.com/starstruck.
