With stunning footage from the Kaguya lunar orbiter, Direct from the Moon reveals images of the moon and Earth in spectacular detail like never seen before.
Featuring Buzz Aldrin and NASA scientists, Direct from the Moon explores the past, present and future of lunar expeditions from the Apollo missions to the challenges involved with establishing a lunar outpost and innovations under way that will inspire the next generation of space exploration.
