About This Episode

What was the most significant thing that the Apollo program achieved (other than landing on the Moon)? Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson gives us a rundown of some major improvements that were made during the Apollo era. He goes on to reflect that we got to discover Earth for the first time from the moon. Comedian Chuck Nice figures that Tang was the second most important achievement!
