The NASA Explorers: “Apollo” series looks at Earth’s moon and the people who explore it. During the Apollo program, the moon became a part of the human domain. 12 astronauts walked on the lunar surface, conducted research there and collected moon rocks to bring back for study.

50 years after humanity’s first steps on the moon, today’s lunar scientists are searching for answers to the big questions: How did the moon form? How did our solar system evolve? Did the moon help life on Earth get its start?
