PBS NewsHour: Moon Landing Anniversary Series

Lectures curated around PBS NewsHour: Moon Landing Anniversary to commemorate the historic July 20, 1969 landing of the Apollo 11 mission to the moon.

Forty years after astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin became the first men to walk on a celestial body other than the Earth, government officials are questioning whether human space exploration is still worth the price. Sending humans to the moon costs the government billions of dollars and NASA and the Obama administration are considering the use of robots instead.
