Lunar Legends and the People of Apollo

IPS wants to help members promote and market their events surrounding the 50th Anniversary of the landing on the moon of Apollo 11 (July 20, 1969), plus provide you with materials to remember the subsequent Apollo moon landings.

We came across two wonderful video series that focus on the people who worked to send humans to the moon. They are being produced for the Space Coast region of Florida, but because the landing of Apollo 11 truly united all people of the world, we felt this work should be shared with a much larger audience.

How to use them?

  • As video shorts prior to your planetarium program.
  • In kiosks or monitors outside of the dome.
  • In emails to your members.
  • On your websites to encourage attendance for your programs and events.
Florida Today People of Apollo logo

The People of Apollo, a series of short videos that looks at some of the 400,000 people who helped make the moon landing possible, plus a 45-minute documentary with the same name. The series is being produced by FLORIDA TODAY, the official newspaper of the Space Coast and a part of the USA TODAY network. 
Complimentary video from FLORIDA TODAYCharlie Mars Video

Trench Media Lunar Legends logo

50/50 Lunar Legends, 1-minute videos of the epic journey to space and those on Earth who lived it, being produced by Trench Media, a media team committed to uncovering high-tech stories that affect society. Because they are based on the Space Coast, they are biased toward covering space and rockets!
A free promo video from Trench Media is available here: Promo Trailer (updated to final version 31 May 2019)


Note: Both videos are housed on Dropbox. You must have a Dropbox account to complete the downloads; free accounts are available at
