Inside the Americas

Behind the scenes at NASA with the next mission to the Moon

On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong made history by becoming the first man ever to walk on the Moon. To mark the 50th anniversary of the first lunar landing, Inside the Americas comes to you from Cape Canaveral in Florida, home to the Kennedy Space Center.
