Paul returns to continue the story of the missions that blazed the trail for the Apollo programme. Alongside the Gemini program that allowed NASA to learn how to live and work in space there was the robotic exploration of the Moon to find out if it was safe to land there. The story tells the tale of early disasters, near misses, final success and an enduring controversy.
