Summer of Space
Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11, the first moon landing, with WKAR and PBS!
A Summer of Space multiplatform experience, anchored by the highly anticipated American Experience six-hour film Chasing the Moon, and including new science and history programs, will begin in July timed to the 50th anniversary celebrations of the Apollo 11 moon landing.
In addition to Chasing the Moon, the Summer of Space lineup brings five new programs that cover different areas of space exploration combined with the best of PBS’ encore space-themed programming and PBS Digital Studios content. PBS KIDS will also roll out new space-themed content beginning in June, including educational resources for families and educators to use all summer long.
