"That’s one small step for a man; one giant leap for mankind." We all know the quote, the triumphant story. It seems written in stone. But Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong came within inches of tragedy when they landed Apollo 11. Moon Graffiti imagines what it might have sounded like if things had gone a little differently. Based on a contingency speech written by William Safire for Richard Nixon titled "In the Event of Moon Disaster".
The Truth is a series of new radio dramas produced by Jonathan Mitchell, edited by Hillary Frank and commissioned by American Public Media. Click here for more on the series.
