“Dawn of the Space Age”
From the launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite, which on 4 October 1957 emitted a robotic repeating pattern every 0.3 minutes, to the “cinematically” exciting landings and future flights to the moon by private spacecraft, we will follow step by step the global adventure of human activity outside the Earth, summed up in the phrase “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”.
Who were the early pioneers of this new interplanetary experience, who withstood accelerations of 13G? Through interviews, documents, testimonies, research we will explore the passion, hard training and incredible heroism of space conquerors from the dawn of the space age to the present day, through the first announcement of Apollo 11: “Huston, this is Tranquillity Base, the Eagle has landed”.
