Historic Annapolis joins more than 50 other Smithsonian Institution-affiliated museums across the country in celebrating the 50th anniversary of humanities historic first steps on the moon by screening the Smithsonian Channel's new documentary, “The Day We Walked on The Moon,” on Saturday, July 20, 2019, 6:30 p.m. in the theater at The Colonial Players of Annapolis located at 108 East Street in Annapolis.
“The Day We Walked on the Moon” features astronauts (including Michael Collins, the third member of the Apollo 11 mission), members of Mission Control (including Flight Director Gene Kranz, Capsule Communicator Charles Duke and Guidance Officer Steve Bales) and the children of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin reveal their personal stories behind the scenes of the iconic day. Pop culture notables like Queen guitarist and doctor of astrophysics Brian May and television personality and professor of physics Brian Cox describe where they were and what they felt during that “One Small Step.” It’s a story that ranges from the deeply personal to the grand and historic, an in-depth look at one of the most important 24-hour periods in history.
