Back to the Moon for Good

Presented August 22, 29 & September 19, 26 at 8 p.m.

Like in the Moon’s glory days of the 1960s and 1970s, our big, white space neighbor is again enjoying the attention of lunar explorers. Only this time, they’re going back to the Moon for good. Narrated by actor and comedian Tim Allen, this award-winning show chronicles teams around the world competing for the Google Lunar XPRIZE, the largest incentivized award in history. To win, teams must place a robot on the Moon’s surface, navigate 500 meters and successfully transmit high- definition images back to Earth. The show ends with a stunning glimpse of a plausible scenario for a future on the Moon. This show was created by NSC Creative and is a production of XPRIZE.
