Wonder Season 1
20 July 1969
Almost 50 years ago 3 astronauts achieved the seemingly impossible by being part of the team that first set foot on the Earth’s Moon, some 384,000 km away.
In doing this they fulfilled what was thought by many as the greatest achievement of the 20th Century.
The idea was one thing, achieving it was another but achieve it they did.
