One Giant Leap:
Jodrell Bank and the Race to the Moon
July 2019 will mark 50 years since humans first set foot on another celestial body. In this, the 50th anniversary year of the moon landing, we’re sharing the incredible story of Jodrell Bank’s role in the race to the Moon.
Jodrell Bank has been at the heart of ground-breaking and world-leading science for over 70 years. In our fascinating new talk, One Giant Leap, you’ll discover newly released audio-visual material from the Jodrell Bank archives, featuring aspects of the both the American and Russian Space programmes.
