Sounds of mankind’s greatest adventure
On July 16 1969, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins set out
on mankind’s greatest and most dangerous adventure – the trip to the
Neil Armstrong’s words as he stepped on the lunar surface are
immortalised in history. With nine mission days in total though, there are a
whole lot of inspiring, humouring and breathtaking transmissions – all
of which are preserved in archives.
Like searching for a needle in a haystack, Josh Bayless sorted through
highlights of all nine mission days and paired his personal favourites in
chronological order with classical music. Paired, these already thrilling transmissions between Apollo 11 and Ground Control take on a
whole new life. What awaits you is a one and a half hour special of some
of the greatest composers to ever have lived and the sounds of
mankind’s greatest and most dangerous adventure.
You will hear sounds from the following mission days:
- Day 1: 5:16
- Day 2: 9:33
- Day 3: 16:16
- Day 4: 25:15
